This show is NOT for the faint of heart. It is a truly deep journey into the most abstract and profound realms of electronic music. It is a jaunt into a space and time that reflects the direction music is taking as we fly into the ultra_future. 2012 may very well need a soundtrack, and these artists and their music could be the candidates for that task.
Others who enjoy the sublime abstraction of the concepts of stress-release or impending earth changes could possibly discover the music's ties to physiologically empowering rhythms that exist in indigenous cultures and traditions; modalities which are meant to LIFT YOU UP and BRING YOU THROUGH blocks in creativity and consciousness in order to reveal a higher state of awareness.
Jason Webley joins Eden's Hour for a special in-studio interview and live performance. While he may be sans orchestra for this interview, we can expect nothing less than fantastic from this energetic one man band.
Jason was supposed to be launching a tour with his long-time friend and musical comrade Amanda Palmer from the Dresden Dolls. However due to Amanda's need to get surgery, the shows were cancelled unexpectedly. Sad for the artists and the many people who had already purchased tickets to the much anticipated shows, but lucky for us because he had time to share with us his awesome gypsy and punk inspired folk music. And we also get a chance to pry a bit into his personal desire to seduce Leonard Cohen. Do I smell a collaboration? We can hope so...

Rodney Franz should be more careful to log out of KRUU when his show is over. This has been a public service announcement of P5K.
The arrangement of concerned parties was a successful gathering. Important discussion of the north embankment came to the table.
A choice was made to "rock the boat" and hopefully capsize the darned thing.
Also the band was renamed "The Progressionals"
Please consider the benefit. (thats about the goat)
February 2nd- Happy Birthday Texas Ted Burghoff! Ted and I met in a Science of Creative Intelligence class at MIU in January 1975. Since then he has been one of Pirate Satellite's biggest supporters. Ted recently asked for another copy of the 1995 Pirate Satellite compilation "Very Blue Light-ish". We'll honor Teddy today by playing songs from that compilation. It features music by Roger Eno, Higher Intelligence Agency, William Orbit, Deep Forest, Moby, Banco De Gaia and more. It's music from the mid-90's electronic ambient pioneers, dedicated to a Beloved friend. Enjoy!

For entrance into Heaven!"
