THIRD PARTY
A gripping political thriller from The Truth

A Middle Eastern musical variety mix – from Montreal, Morocco via the UK, & Israel in the first 40 mins. That is followed by a three song set by Toronto’s Kobo Town for a new calypsonian poetry/activism. Then we hear a two song selection from Ethiopian retro group from Boston’s Berklee School of Music, Debo Band, who recently played the Cedar Cultural Center. Then the highlight of the show — a first listen to an exclusive interview with Oliver Mtukudzi, superstar from Zimbabwe, Southern Africa — conducted by Minna Zhou who joined me on today’s Global Beat.

Tonight we debuted the excellent new compilation The Eastern Rising on the Svaha Sound label; the soulful “My Homeys” from Marina P; Cornel Campbell’s righteous “New Scroll” on Zion High Productions and the great “Eek-ology” set (2-CD, 1-DVD) chronicling the career of Eek-A-Mouse (on 17 N. Parade/VP). With Mad Professor & Joe Ariwa in town this week (at 7th St. Entry), we put together a varied Ariwa set – which included the Professor’s sublime “Samba Dub Experience” album. More new music tonight from HIRIE, The Process, Mungo’s Hi-Fi (ft. Lady Ann), General Jah Mikey, Bass Culture Players, Brain Damage meets Vibronic, Zombies of Death, Dr. Epidemic, and Karma Dub. More great tunes from Orquestra Brasileira de Musica Jamaicana (OBMJ), Little Tempo, Ill-Esha, Luz, John Brown’s Body, SXtheMadArtist, Up, Bustle & Out, Rhea Creole Lawrence & The Dub Master, Tommy McCook, Minneapolis Dub Ensemble, and more…

We speak with Tim Ward about his book What the Buddha Never Taught, his bestseller about life in one of the strictest monasteries in Southeast Asia, back in print in a new 20th anniversary edition.

We also talk with Swati Avasthi about her new novel Chasing Shadows. She is also the author of the novel Split, which won many awards, including the 2011 International Reading Association Award.

Stringband tunes, bird songs for fall & lots of local music!

The Map To Our Responsive Universe, Where Dreams Really Do Come True
 

To create a totally joyous life, a life of your dreams? Some people have read book after book on the subject, and they still haven’t managed to make it happen. (Not their fault, really – the instructions just haven’t been clear enough, or easy enough to implement into daily life.)

Well, according to Boni Lonnsburry, you already HAVE what it takes. You’ve had it all along. Sometimes though we just need a little help finding it, and to be shown how to use it.

Boni’s been working with the principles of “conscious creation” (also known as “manifestation”) for nearly thirty years – studying and working with dozens (if not HUNDREDS) of teachers, authors, and healers.

Boni has also looked inward, and scoured her own conscious and subconscious minds for what caused her most disappointing and painful realities, as well as the most successful and triumphant ones. Then she painstakingly broke down every area of her life and, bit by bit, built it back up exactly the way she wanted it.

And when she was done, she collected everything together and created…“The Map”

The Queen is in the Counting House – we begin a baseball mystery with Captain Underhill, from the Cape Cod Radio Mystery Theater. Featuring Fenway Park. And short silly subjects from the Big Fun Radio Funtime show in September.
