Transmission 9214

Have you ever had someone that you are telepathically connected to? Consistently present and aware, the joy and happiness delivered by my psychic partner of the heart inspires a Sunday session in the Archives featuring Keith Emerson & Greg Lake, Daryl Hall & Todd Rundgren, Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant, Peter Green and Lindsey Buckingham era Fleetwood Mac, Tame Impala, Pond and Mink Mussel Creek!

Transmission 9114

The words and sounds of "the cute Beatle" get things rolling with recycled junk-art by Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Robin Zander & Rick Nielsen, Roger Daltrey and Wings! We then get big, happy and blue with Eyal Maoz, Seks Bomba and Oz Noy. Finally, Low inspired sounds from Dylan Howe, David Bowie and Phillip Glass soothe us into a hushed peaceful tranquility!

"you help me sing my song"

" a state of tremendous tranquility, calmness, serenity, silence. 
And out of that silence is poetry. 
Out of that silence is song, 
and out of that silence arises a dance of your being." 
Osho - Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

Maybe you are like me and saw this show, but missed the concert movie! A Rockshow featuring Wings Over North America in 1976!

 Coincidently, we lost "the quiet Beatle" on this day in 2001. George Harrison's songs have become very important to me as I have grown. Enjoy this great all-star tribute!

Four musical Heroes (Phillip Glass - Aphex Twin - David Bowie - Brian Eno) colliding!

"Let's Eat"


My fondest memories of this special day include waking up early and watching the Macy's parade live from NYC with my family. 

After awhile, the adults would go into into the kitchen to continue cooking, showing me "Tom's " progress every hour!

I would adjust the rabbit ears on the trusty black and white set, sneak a few strufoli and settle in with my cousins for a morning marathon of holiday cartoons.

We would then all gather for an Italian feast! 

 Listen to the music as you prepare your meal, then enjoy a few of the video favorites below with your kids and grandkids and watch them roll their eyes as you tell them the stories about
 ..."when I was young ...."!

"good old Golden Rule days"


*The illustration is the 1907 sheet music for "School Days" written that year by Will Cobb and Gus Edwards. A sentimental remembrance of those bygone days, the version we played by Louis Jordan was recorded in 1949 and took jumpin' liberty with the verses, but kept the chorus intact!

**The (Golden) Rule of Three was a shorthand version for a particular form of cross-multiplication, often taught to students by rote. 

***I  fondly remember getting psychologically tortured by the fine nuns of my Catholic grammar school, being physically beaten by the role-model Jesuit priests of my early high school years and transversely, the names and faces of the few teachers and broadcast instructors and professionals that were great at their jobs, taught me well and made a difference in my life! 

"Teach Your Children well, their father's hell, did slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams, they one they fix, the one you'll know by"

~Listen, Listen, Listen~

Transmission 8714

Wake up
Today will be shorter than the last
Your heart beats faster than the seconds that pass you
Nightime will soon arrive.

Just as brightness merges into night, the lines that separate our themes are as close as the twilight between the beats of a blurred pulse. Transform with Laurie Anderson, Wayne County & The Electric Chairs, Massive Attack, Brian Wilson, Q65, The Eyes, Jim Carroll Band, Japan and William Burroughs.

"before the darkness there's a moment of light"


* According to the American Heart Association, the average heart at rest beats 60 to 80 times per minute.

**Twilight is the illumination of the Earth's lower atmosphere when the Sun itself is not directly visible because it is below the horizon. Twilight is produced by sunlight scattering in the upper atmosphere, illuminating the lower atmosphere so that the surface of the Earth is neither completely lit nor completely dark. The word "twilight" is also used to denote the periods of time when this illumination occurs.

***Psychologist William James, in his 1890 text "Principles of Psychology", wrote that as we age, time seems to speed up because adulthood is accompanied by fewer and fewer memorable events. When the passage of time is measured by “firsts”- the lack of new experiences in adulthood, James morosely argues, causes “the days and weeks [to] smooth themselves out…and the years grow hollow and collapse” (sigh). A good argument to try more new things (or old things with new people) and slow it all down!
