With Readie Righteous

Shake off the week, oh Righteous Ones! It's everything from Acid-Folk to Ziglibithy. Light the candles, drape your scarves; this is your time! I bring thee ambient, Afrobeat, international, Tuareg, Tuvan throat singing, queercore, gnawa, pop, disco, post-punk, jazz, soul, R 'n' B, obit-core and more. Opportunistic singing-along with your DJ is de rigeur. Your lagniappe: historical perspective, social consciousness, irreverence.

Alan, what time and what direction will the Perseids be?
Alan Pasnyk 5:32:35 PM
Readie: If you can count more than about 20 stars you will probably see at least one every half hour...Stay up late (after 10 PM) face north east and up, and ABSOLUTELY TUNE IN WPRB's MUSIC WITH SPACE to attract meteors :)

Hi Readie, I first heard Rodriguez around 2019 in a cafe in La Jolla/San Diego called cafe pannikin. I will never forget how I felt that day and I’m in kind of similar state right now. excellent set.
Readie Righteous (host) 5:41:32 PM
@Professor Hawking was brilliant...
Readie Righteous (host) 5:42:52 PM
Hi Gautham- absolutely! More Rodriguez to come- I'm so glad I got to see him (in 2018)- it was an experience! So great that you also got to see him!!!

Hi W VA!! Welcome!!
Richard from Rocky Hill 6:01:17 PM
@ Readie Righteous (host) I was very touched by your reference just now on mic break to seeing the Perseid meteor showers years back while visiting Lake George. I spent a lot of time in the 1980s & '90s at nearby Lake Champlain. And the celestial glory of the night skies was always just astonishing! But it was terribly poignant by comparison, realizing how much light pollution in heavily developed regions has erased our view of the stars.
Readie Righteous (host) 6:08:38 PM
@Richard- so true- it's getting tougher & tougher to enjoy mother nature's gifts...hope we can get the political will to fix this climate catastrophe...

Readie Righteous (host) 7:15:10 PM
@Alan- Naw- it's the amplification of things like people stamping feet and I love bass- but not very loud, jarring sound as you might like with James Bond or Fast and Furious...
Alan Pasnyk 7:16:16 PM
Readie: So If you have an IMAX it's mandatory to Overdo the Bass Ha ha!!
Rob F 7:21:44 PM
@Addie interesting. Hope the job goes well
Readie Righteous (host) 7:21:53 PM
@Alan- hard to explain- you can't concentrate on a psychological drama with all the histrionical noise...
Readie Righteous (host) 7:22:44 PM

Readie Righteous (host) 7:37:15 PM
@Richard- I agree- I love the story songs, and the fact that it was most likely a collab among all the members- Robbie was adamant about taking sole composer credit...
Readie Righteous (host) 7:39:07 PM
@radiofreemountairy - Yes! Robbie's voice was made for the warmth of vinyl!!!
