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!

Transmission 216 - Time Flies (but always in a circle)!


I originally conceived this cinematic-sounding set as a Sunday in The Archives type show, then it dawned on me that I spent many a teenage Saturday at the theater or the drive-in "watching" a groovy double-feature. The two we have on the marque include music by

Enio Morricone 

Ryuichi Sakamoto

Arrive early for the best spot, hot buttered popcorn and assorted short subjects from

Yoshiaki Fujikawa & Eastasia

Yes

Fanu & Bill Laswell

Luigi Tenco

 Conrad Schnitzler

** The recited lyrics were borrowed from The Who's Won't Get Fooled Again. Will we?
