INTO ETERNITY
Finland is building an underground cave, to hold tons of nuclear waste, for at least 100,000 years.

Opening today’s show with Kiev, Ukraine’s Dakha Brakha… three tracks to bring on home the struggles of another place. And then again back to the past — echoes of Medieval Spain & remnant songs of another time. After a good round of Spain’s varietals – on to classics from the southwest US, central Mexico and Puerto Rico with the local group from year’s past “Proyecto La Plena”.

Knocking down the house with dub….tons of dub. First up was the heavy new “Rootsstep to the World Vol. 18” from Don Goliath. This was followed by Adam Prescott’s excellent “The Mystic EP” (on MindStep); the Horace Andy re-release “Get Wise” (Pressure Sounds); Luciano with the Mad Professor on “Deliverance”; Ashley’s latest rootical dub “Babylon Institution” (on Dubkey); G-Corp meet Big Heartz “Grow EP”; Skarob’s self-titled release on Subatomic Sound; Sierra Leone Refugee All-Stars’ great new “Libation” (Cumbancha); and the hard to categorize “Static/In” release from Ash Is. Also tonight we played a chunk of the great mix “Stepping Between Reggae & Dub Vol. IV” from the Groove Thief, plus another early pre-Uhuru single from Michael Rose (courtesy of Eric “Blowtorch” Beaumont). On top of all this were more great tracks from Les Nubians, Marina P, Papa Sambor, Jennifer Paulos & Mystic Selekta, Daily Bread Dub, Dubchek, Cornerstone Dub, Blue King Brown, Ott, The Pietasters, Shigeto, and more…

We speak with Robert Morgan about his new novel The Road from Gap Creek, the follow up to his bestseller Gap Creek. He is a poet and biographer as well as a novelist and is a recipient of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, fellowships from the Guggenheim and Rockefeller foundations and an American Academy of Arts and Letters award.

Betrayal of Love and Freedom – Man Naturally Cures Himself of Bipolar Disorder

In 1998, author Paul Huljich was diagnosed by psychiatrists as suffering from Bipolar Disorder, also known as manic depression. That year, he experienced a full mental breakdown, lost his rights as a citizen and was made a ward of the state.

Informed that there was no cure, that he would eventually relapse, and that he would be dependent on medication for the rest of his life, Huljich traveled to the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for treatment and later admitted himself to the Menninger Clinic in Kansas to more fully understand and address his condition. Aided by research and his background in organic foods, Huljich developed a diet, exercise, and wellness plan that would help him end his dependence on medication to cure himself and find true peace of mind.

Since the year 2000, Huljich has not taken any psychotropic or psychiatric medication or any medication related to mental illness. Nor has he suffered any relapse of depression or manic depression, or received further treatment from any psychiatrist, therapist, or doctor regarding mental illness. He has never felt better.

Detectives old and new. The new one is another from the casebook of Garson Krebs, P.I., The Man With a Past. The old is Richard Diamond, P.I. from 1951, The Man With a Scar, starring Dick Powell.
