Happy Thanksgiving

by on Nov.24, 2011, under The Musings

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just sending out a shout out to all of you who’ve been listening to the station and visiting this site.

Wanted to wish you all the best this Thanksgiving no matte what your situation might be at this time.

I know a number of us are dealing with some real liquid hell right now and I just wanted to say that I am wishing all the best to us all.

I can only imagine what any of us are really contemplating being thankful for in our heads.

In my head I am rolling past images and sounds of happier times and considering what things would have been like had those times continued.

I’m also thinking about how cool it would be if all of you were having an easier time of it.

I’m thinking how thankful coming into contact with you I am and how that contact has made me a better person.

I’m thankful that somehow WBPM NetRADIO will complete another year of broadcasting. I would not be lying if I said it has truly been a struggle.

I’m thankful for the opportunities to make new friends in a shrinking world and I am thankful to you who’ve stopped long enough to visit this site and listen to the music that plays on the station.

I would make one request (beyond signing up as a VIP of course!).

I think we should consider being thankful not to have to deal with some of life’s dramas that too many of us are dealing with. And, we should all become activists in working towards reducing that drama. I know I would appreciate that.

Dear Egypt,

I see you and I admire your fire. Please do not lose your humanity and remember your world is one of the lights in our world.

Dear Yemen,

No one has perfected it yet. Now it is your turn to show what you can do. Can you do this? Remake a society that takes the best of all for the betterment of all?

Dear Libya,

Okay you’ve done the thing. Now do your thing!

Dear Syria,

Hold on. Water eventually evaporates.

Dear Europe,

Good luck and maybe stepping out of the box will show you and the rest of us the way.

Dear United States,

Wake up. Get Up and Get Down. Stop playin’. Tomorrow is too important to be beholding to clowns who laugh at you instead of with you.

Dear You,

I know sometimes my constant positivity can be annoying as hell when the heat is “melting your sneakers”. but we have no choice. There are no battalions coming to render aid, no fairy godmothers hovering about. therefore we have to be our own cheerleaders and we have to believe no matter what that we can do.  Just as those who came before us believed they could succeed under much more adverse conditions. I want to thank you for believing in me and providing me with opportunities to be me. Above all else, I give thanks for you being my friends. Without you, this life would be a lot lonelier. I hope I have returned the favors.

Peace,

DJ

Takes me back (again) …

by on Feb.22, 2011, under Station Update, The Musings

Takes me back to then…

“All these goings on over in Africa…”

Well…

just do what you do but do it right…(isn’t that a song from somewhere?)

“Huh?”

northern-africa

It’s like Deja vu all over again…

…you say? Here’s a clue. Check your maps …. Don’t forget Sudan..both of them… (okay shoot the map guy!)

#Libya #Tunisia #Egypt … Imagine that…(Good luck people)

(Still feelin’ woozy? Here is why I feel it’s like deja vu all over again. Come back when you’re finished.)

So remember kiddies…let these times be a lesson. All it takes is to remove the pebble out from under the boulder to get it to start  rolling downhill. Oh, and never buy Texas from a Cowboy (remember that cut?).

Can you draw a line between those places on the map and Wisconsin or more recently Texas and relate? Can you see how one group  is fighting to hold on while others are trying to get a hold? Do you understand the machinations behind the opposition to those movements is about power while the protagonists are fighting for the right?

Well the Isley’s said it first. “You’ve got to fight the powers that be.”

While the Temps shook their heads muttering It’s all a “Ball of Confusion…”

While you contemplate what in the world I am talking about ..know this…

I’ve added more tracks into the rotation so if you tune in you will hear additional amazing sets created from deep within the catacombs of WBPM NetRADIO. There’s House, Jazz, Hip Hop, R&B, World Beat, Deep House Grooves, Chill Beats, Reggae and much more from across the planet. Get it while it’s hot!

Later!

P.S.: 2nd Chance part 1. This mess is playing out like a Billy Preston record. What you’ve read is a post from about two years ago. Now step back into real time and ask yourself “that on the radio again?” Click and see why I say what I say when I said it today.

Shoutout & Update…

by on Feb.07, 2011, under Station Update, The Musings

peaceful demonstrations @ Tahrir square Cairo ...

Yo EGYPT!!!!!

Things done went buck wild up in there for a minute -hey!!?!! Go head. Do what you do. Old dude been up in it way too long. Time flied while he was having fun no? All of y’all get together and save one of the greatest lights of humanity okay? Because that’s what #Egypt is to me. I wanna visit the pyramids. I look forward to walking through #Cairo’s Tahrir Square one day. Be safe. Feel me?

Now for the mundane stuff….

The station survived the weekend maintenance update. Sounds like the breaks between the tracks are nearly impossible to hear.

Yaaaaaaay!!

See, you folks who are listening for free have no idea how the station really sounds because you keep getting those stoopid commercials dropped on you right in the middle of the best parts of the mixes. Doncha hate that? Kinda frustrating isn’t it? Like those times when you are just about to get into or do something you really want/need to do and someone knocks at the door or calls you. P.I.T.A.  right? Check this out. Try VIP mode for free listen to the station for a while. I guarantee you will see the point I’m trying to make.

During the down time..somehow..some way… 30 more hours of mixes were uploaded while the sets that were playing last week are GONE!(Okay, okay I left one up there…betcha can’t pick which one!)

Gee, wonder how that happened?

Click the widget to the right to see what I uploaded for your ears. Hopefully it will help you snow bunnies up there in the cold cold north slip through your day.

Check out the lyrics to WHOA! by Muthafunkaz. Cracks me up. One of the best arrangements I have heard in a while. Nicely done. (The mix I dropped them into ain’t too shabby either but who’s braggin’?)

This week is filled with the kind of music you don’t hear on those “other” stations. It’s about they get mixed in because they fit in. And some cuts were simply fit in. But that’s another story.

One quick note:

Before you tune in with your new fangled iPads and tablets check your data plans. If you’re near wi-fi, use that. Its better also word is out that a certain cell phone carrier who’s name makes one look to the horizon (c’mon that was witty as hell…no?)  is considering throttling back heavy bandwidth users…which reminds me..it’s been time to switch!
