Karma cannot be invoked as a warning or a weapon to another person, it is a personal circle that you control for yourself. The important thing to remember is that you can change your Karma immediately and permanently if you make it happen now (do it - don't try it). Therefore, you are indeed your own Karma Police Force - let's go and come with John Lennon, Joss Stone, The Wildhearts, Journey, The Spongetones, The High Llamas, Stitches, Radiohead, David Bowie, Nik Raicevic and Eyvind Kang!

* The pre-intro stunner was "What Goes Around Comes Around" by Justin Timberlake from "Futuresex/Lovesounds", his second released in 2006. I don't venture into the POP Universe that often, but he is the real deal. Check out the whole lp if you have not already (I'm so behind the times).

"I want to hold you like the sky holds the sun"

RFW

* An annular solar eclipse will take place on May 20, 2012 (May 21, 2012 for local time in Eastern Hemisphere), with a magnitude of 0.9439. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partially obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun, causing the Sun to look like an annulus (ring), blocking most of the Sun's light. An annular eclipse appears as a partial eclipse over a region thousands of kilometres wide.

To My Mother

Because I feel that, in the Heavens above,
The angels, whispering to one another,
Can find, among their burning terms of love,
None so devotional as that of "Mother,"
Therefore by that dear name I long have called you-
You who are more than mother unto me,
And fill my heart of hearts, where Death installed you
In setting my Virginia's spirit free.
My mother-my own mother, who died early,
Was but the mother of myself; but you
Are mother to the one I loved so dearly,
And thus are dearer than the mother I knew
By that infinity with which my wife
Was dearer to my soul than its soul-life.

Edgar Allen Poe

Are you lucky enough to see or talk with your Mother today? How about your Mother-In-Law, Grandmother or the Mother of your children? If you can - do it! If for what ever reason you can't or won't- I suggest that you at least lovingly think about them as you enjoy the Motherly Melodies of Roxy Music, The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, New Radicals, The Books, Harry Nilsson, Bill Shank, Pink Floyd, Woodpigeon, Frank Zappa, Ohio Players, Pat Holben Trio, The Soul Leaders, Sly Stone and The Brides Of Funkenstein!

* Todays pre-intro opener "Motherfuckin' Deer Bit Me" was from the curious but always entertaining  mind of  Boyd Rice and can be found on the classic "The Way I Feel".

**Today's show is dedicated to Mrs. Clara Wohlman, Ms. Mildred "Micki" Plemmons and your Mother!

*** The women who gave me the most amazing gifts in the world - my sons Curtis, Derek and Michael - are both real mothers. I thank you each for sharing your motherhood with me.

**** ILU PDW- Happy Mother's Day!

Today is the 44th birthday of my wife Pamela Dean Wohlman. She just went to her first concert in a long time (if you don't count Big Time Rush) and since we have seen so many amazing shows together during our 23 years - to celebrate in style, I've assembled an all-star line-up of Pam's favorite bands to perform in her honor.

Help Pam blow out her candles with Y&T, Scorpions, Ozzy Osbourne, Van Halen, AC-DC, INXS, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Stone Temple Pilots, Nine Inch Nails, Def Leppard and Guns 'n' Roses!

The amazing thing is that she is more beautiful today than she has ever been in her life! Joe Cocker starts the show with a song that says it all "you're everything I hoped for, you're everything I need, You Are So Beautiful to me". I love you babe - rock on!
