Valentines Day

by on Feb.13, 2015, under Station Update, The Music

So, once again its “Valentine’s Day

Ever wonder who was this Valentine dude and was this person really all that “mushy”?

Did a little digging and it seems that the Catholic Church recognizes about three different saints named either Valentinus or Valentine. One line goes that Roman emperor Claudius II decreed single dudes made better soldiers than those with wives (hmmm Spartans had wives…). So, he outlawed marriage for the soldiers. Valentine, a priest, defied the emperor so he was put to death (no sense of humor that dude).

Another line is that Valentine was a priest who helped Christians escape Roman prisons.

Then there is one about Valentine being the first to send a “valentine” to his jailor’s daughter who visited him while he was in the slammer prior to his death.

So this priest reputation as a heroic, sympathetic but mainly romantic type is what really seemed to fire his popularity in the following centuries.

Another idea is that the holiday was created in order to Christianize a pagan holiday named Lupercalia. Originally the Pagan holiday survived the rise of Christiandom only later to be deemed un-Christian.

But enough of the historical possibilities. Ever wonder when all the commercialization began? How about during the 1800s. That’s right we’ve been getting bombarded to give people money to say what we should be able to say in the first place for over 200 years!

It has gone from simple cards to elaborate underwear. And while the commercialization has continued, music has been employed to further push the movement of momentos and gifts.

Interestingly enough it seems musicians, songwriters and others don’t seem to need a special day to create music where love is the main theme. In that groove I present to you a set of songs where you can catch the drift any time of year any time of day. The Valentine set is in the rotation and will be heard during the weekend. It features the likes of Bootsy, Atlantic Starr, Al Green, Zapp, L.T.D., Roy Ayers, Norman Conners, Floetry, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, The Stylistics, The Jones Girls and more singing about a range of heartfelt emotions.

Check out the set.

Stay Sane (and warm “Northerners”), Peace,

DJ

2015

by on Jan.13, 2015, under Station Update

Uhhh (tap! tap!) this mic on?WBPM NETRADIO PLAYS JAZZ TOO

Good tidings to all and all of that stuff. Hope you’ve been well or at least trying to be so.

This will no doubt prove to be an interesting year.

Changes coming to the station very soon.

Stay tuned okay?

In the meantime, don’t be shy checking out the sets that are currently streaming.

Some have noticed that there are not a lot of shows listed on the station’s calendar.

That does in no way mean there is nothing on in fact, there is even more music playing.

So, no it simply means that the format is extremely varied and no matter when you tune in you will hear something quite tasty!

New lineups and new shows are on the drawing board and in the meantime DJ will be continue creating the mix sets you know and love.

There just will be no warnings.

Lot’s of madness in the news (surprise).

But that’s seems to be the way of the world these days.

Just don’t you go mad on this ball of confusion (Temptations, great group).

Remember to remember to consider the source and where they are coming from when you hear it.

For those who love Jazz and don’t hear enough on the radio…

Ronnie Foster

Check out Ronnie Foster‘s “Mystic Brew” off of his “The Two Headed Freap”  and tell me what group used it and for what song….

The winner will get something.

Naturally it is playing on the station and it is part of a set of some good cuts. Another example is Ramsey Lewis‘ remake of one of his most famous songs “Sun Goddess”. It’s in there as is also music by Harvey Mason and cast of others. This set is huge and you will enjoy tuning in. As always the stream is produced so that even those with slower low bandwidth connects will hear a quality broadcast.

Remember this station survives only with your continued support.

Pass the word on to:

those who don’t know about WBPM NetRADIO

those who would prefer to listen to the station without commercial interruptions (definiteyly sign up for a VIP account)

those who like a variety of music by a variety of artists

those who are tired of hearing same songs hour after hour (after hour).

Make sure you drop them a hint. It’s the right thing to do and they will look at you with “new eyes”!

Ok

Gotta go, things to flow – y’know?

Peace,

DJ
