In addition to March 20th marking the first day of Spring, it also highlighted the Equinox. A day when both sides of the Hemisphere receive equal amounts of sunlight and darkness. Numerologists have said it is a great time to set your intentions for the upcoming months. So, what intentions have you set for yourself?
Before I get into it, I want to first point out a song credit and a very interesting story to go along with it, that I meant to mention on the show. Sometimes I dj at a Chuck E. Cheese kind of place. A few nights ago on St. Patrick’s Day, I met Joseph Peck, while his Son was hanging out with Mickey Mouse on the dancefloor. He told me it was the first time his Son ever saw Mickey Mouse, as they don’t have a tv at home. Instead, they have lots of music instruments. I learned he played the steel drums. It hearkened back to my first memory of learning what a steel drum was, when I saw a guy make one out of an old oil drum on an episode of Sesame Street. Joseph said “That’s Ellie Mannette! He’s my mentor! He taught me how to tune steel drums!” In addition to catching my Sesame Street reference, it was fascinating that he actually directly knew Ellie! I told Joseph about Inspirado Projecto, had him email me a link to his music and played his song “Slow Sunrise Flow” at the top of the show. Thank you Joseph!
Our guest of the show, is Craig Spivek, a local comedian. We met on the train while I was on my way to make music with my songwriting partner, Lawrence August . He talked about his book, “Comedy Will Save Us All!” It’s available on Amazon and a cross between an autobiography and self-help book. As you read the stories, you get the feeling that you grew up with Craig. He’s very personable and hilarious. Plus, he’s a big fan of synchronicities, which is always a wonderful revelation to learn about someone.
We also played Funfacts by Henry D. Horse, presented the new KaPow Intergalactic Film Festival promo, talked about the upcoming Yachtley Crew shows on April 14th at StillWater Spirits & Sounds and April 15th at Bombay Bar & Grill, featured an advert by our official sponsor MEAT Clown Industries, had the honour of spilling the latest dead celebrity news from the Celebrity Afterlife Report, and unearthed a great ol’ Max Headroom song!
Oh! We also broadcasted LIVE from the KCHUNG Studio, through Periscope! The first time we ever broadcasted LIVE through Periscope, was during our FAR Bazaar episode.
