Transmission 616 - God Moves, Falls And Rises


Usually, He is gracious enough to allow things to die, but once. 
Although that is obviously not always the case. 

The second coming of a legendary Boston radio station, WBCN Free Form Rock - which I was a part of, was shut down yesterday. This only added to the grief caused by ongoing and impacting deaths of musical innovators so far in 2016. 

I force myself to remember that all things must pass and with every end, 
comes a new beginning.

The following 3 hour show is the aborted playlist that was in progress, but never fully aired on the last show of this rule-breaking, musically adventurous institution. My love and highest regards go out to my fellow staff members and all our listeners.

Meanwhile, the torch shines brightly on RFW!

*It was a honor and a pleasure to be in such company as the people who worked at WBCN, Boston thru the years and the family of the newest incarnation -

can't drive forward looking in the rear-view mirror 
 - right?
