Good Morning Good ALL …  

Esteemed worldOne festival Artists + Production + Tech + Volunteer + Atrisan Collaborators

Thank you !  for your Willingness + Passion + Love + Professionalism

It all came together, as these wonderfully complex events do …

after a full year , and even y e a r s of planning, among persons, teams , organizations …

into a Beautiful Swirling Wind-Washed and Sun-Bathed Celebration of worldOnelove …U.S.ALL ..

The production cycle is of course  several active weeks of pre and post fest tasking .. crescendo and  denouement  ..

some tasks heady and logistic… others sweaty and all knux and alley oops..

This morning Corey is having trouble typing, these several days .. pinched nerve due to hanging from trusses, and pounding or removing rebar.. lol..

any sore muscles, splinters will pass , as will this day and season… in our Parade of Days ..

What will not pass or dissolve is our collective and Spiritually etched immersion into the living letters of Great Spirit ..

Earth Wind Fire Water Air … breathing together + speaking appreciations, swaying sharing and praising that which Give Us Life

the very ground of our existence to pursue the Dream of this Evolving America , We the People ..

Living the Arts of Living  as Human Beings ..

Learning Evermore to Live Our Highest Aspirations  though Bright Blessed Days and Dark Sacred Nights ..

U.S.ALL Our Relations …

Happy Summerings !  Ride on and Turn the People On !

Thank You All, Mahalo, Iorana, Gracias, Sukriat, Salamat, O se,  Xie Xie  … Blessed Be ..

Festival attendees protocol/notes:   We are growing as the word gets out about worldOneradio+festival  .. ( an overnight sensation, after only 20 years?! ). Yes, we can bring picnic/byo, respectfully.

El Cerrito is a smoke-free city, that is, no smoking in shared public places.  

from the El Cerrito Shopping Center ( former Safeway ) on San Pablo at Moeser.  

We love pets though we cannot admit dogs, as canines can become fractious/nervous and their human handlers can get similarly edgy.

Blankets + low back chairs only please ..  please > tents, umbrellas, regular high back chairs  behind the line of Production/Info tents, clearly marked, for everyone’s sight lines and enjoyment.The Main Stage sounds great anywhere in the seating area!

If you may have needs for other ability / seniors, please lets us know in advance, as there are some shade structures in place for those of us with particular other needs.

Bicycle valet is available and public transport is encouraged.

There will be City /local  shuttles running up from the from the El Cerrito Shopping Center ( former Safeway ) on San Pablo at Moeser. Our July 4  food court is nearby across Pomona street, a short distance via sidewalks with ramps. Ample free street parking nearby in the neighborhood , though each year it seems we have to walk a bit further, often several blocks and there are a few hills ( curb those wheels). Cerrito Vista Park is located a few blocks East of BART about equidistant between EC Plaza and Del Norte  .. likely @ 20 minutes of stroll from either BART station. An easy bike ride from BART.

Please remember that while this is a freely presented event, City, Sponsor, and District  funding does its part, as a volunteer -driven event we have responsibilities too, to add our stoke to the Arts. Please do support the hand and heart selected Arts and Foods vendors, festival merchandise, and the donation pots at the Main Stage. A little goes a long way if we all donate a little, and a lot goes a whole lot further.

If you are planning to arrive in advance of a set .. please allow time for parking getting settled in, earlier is better!

worldOne djs and other interludes are ready to invite, engage and delight you. Our Gratitude + Admiration always for the work and Inspiration of  Master Blenders :  Gregg McVicar UnderCurrents Radio   and Jose Ruiz aka MundoMuzik .

Wone pc back 2016 Final 3.22.16.R3

88.1 keCg 97.7  was founded in 1978, licensed to El Cerrito High School/WCCUSD. You can imagine how we struggle inside a massive school district to make it all work, on a comparative “shoe string”, amidst 50 school and respective programs.  Since 1995, multiple award-winning worldOneradio operates, as yet, on a Wing and Prayer .. and YES ! we need all of us who cherish public spirited media, musicultral arts and education, community good juju to do what y’all and we can in our respective tiny canoes .. Calling all Amoristas and Active Citizens to pitch into the celebratory cornucopia. By direct donation ( keCg Public Radio ,540 Ashbury Ave, Suite B200, El Cerrito, CA 94530), donation and support at the festival itself.

Our volunteers, our household is ALL IN.  Why ?  We Believe in the regenerative Power of Giving Thanks, Gathering and Celebrating with Musics, Arts + Dance. Being Festive, in Spirit, Culture-Roots, and Intention, pouring ourselves into something bigger than ourselves,  in Giving Thanks and reflecting the Gift of Life to Life, in a way that LIFE will feel and hear our Gratitude and Joy, though all the seasons…. sonando, remando, realizando … The best in US sharing with All of Us. Each one giving, vibzing, and presencing, generous and smiling from heart in their own way  .. worldOnelove sunflower power for real, musicultura que cura within you and without you.  Familes + foods + fest + friendship … what could be finer ?    Thank you for the favor of your listening,  attending, recommending , supporting, stoking, sweating, contributing what you can .  If you’d like to join the production-volunteer team, navigate to the i volunteer tab above .. and please feel free to call/contact Corey and Debra Sue at worldOneheartquarters.   Happy Summerings .. See All soon…    = : ) ~     

Corey is writing from El Cerritmo heartquarters this morning… enjoying the sound of seasonal owls hooting from a nearby stand of trees.. they are back … and long with all the Spring Blooms .. this lush and beautiful Spring, Thanks to generous rains ..our back yard is a riot of oxalis, and seasonal blooms .. (soon to be gopher salad-buffet all you can eat heaven!) We will always cherish a brunch we we were enjoying with our pal Michael Roman, when a weedy shrub (the size and roundness of a medium yoga ball) just beside our table, after a few gentle shimmies, shook like a 60’s gogo dancer and THAAWIP ! yoiked out of sight …

worldOnefestival is rising again.. it takes a Village … to invoke, trust, sweat, and pray through an annual endeavor like this ..it is not for us that we do this, as a community event, though we do benefit from it, the Fullness therein … and now a generation of families has grown up with this particular blossom of musicality, kultimultural celebration and collective aspiration.. kecg.glyph.tot.SoBE1.5a Genuine festival is in Honor of something, serving some Spirit Greater than Ourselves,  some facets of the Greatest within Ourselves .. and thus immersive, exhausting, regenerative.. Roger’s recent, latest totem:

In September 2015 worldOne rounded 20 years of public radio broadcast here on the Bay Rim via 88.1 keCg 97.7, a broadcast service of West Contra Costa Unified School District (wherein Corey teaches Broadcast Journalism  and Spanish along with hosting, programming, managing keCg). We have gotten by with the enduring if not public-schools-funding-buffeted support of our District along with the stalwart Vision and fiduciary facilitation of City of El Cerrito  and a little a little and alotta help from like-minded sponsors and friends. Your direct listener or business underwrite sponsorship of KeCg Public Radio will be warmly welcomed! And it goes along way. It has to ! While we urge you to support your favorite public spirited media, as we seem to never miss the water til its gone.  For our part glocally, we have dedicated ourselves to continually seeking, finding, remembering and rewinding why we do what we do in our tiny canoe .. in Education and Integrative Medicine medicine and Debra Sue + Corey are again callin …debra sue pro fotocorecast 2016for all MatronPatronage + Angelic + GlocalYokel support, Volunteers, direct donations and Sponsors to become involved in the sweep of the festival and the swirl of its Artistry along with @ 12,000 attendees ... somehow we got a bit older …  we started out as hale 20-40 somethings and quickly became 40 – 60+ somethings  .. ain’t that something? ! LOL … if you or your civic, work, spirit group  crew affiliation can afford some time the week before and the day after the event dates, that is June 28 – July 6th, please do reach to us directly at heartquarters… and otherwise employ the I volunteer link in the pull-down header bar.
