This Island Earth
Sunday September 2nd, 2018 with PeterB
From contemplative, to out there free jazz, to fusions. Dig it!

Today's This Island Earth adventure leads us from the spiritual and contemplative, to Pan-Galactic Jazz, to Afro-Futurism, to Fusions, to... Mostly just lots of long sets, and long tracks. Less yacks, more tracks. How we like it! Please hit us up on the Interactive Thingy (over there ==>). We'd love to hear from you!! PS: THANKS Ed for filling the gap as yers truly was badly delayed trying to get in to the studio today!!

Interactive CKCU
Hi PeterB, Glad you made it into CKCU in one piece! Getting around the campus is fun 'n' games at the best of times--today is probably worse. Doing some serious housework today--getting ready for the 'second' New Year that happens on the day after Labour Day in this part of the world. Saying goodbye to summer and getting back into a new routine.

Welcome! Hope y'all enjoy today's extended set of mostly long tracks. Due to the delay getting in (insane traffic on Campus), there will be some re-arranging of the playlist as we go. Might want to hit refresh on your browser every now and then.

hi, whereare we now in playlist?

PeterB (host)
Hi Peter. Glad you are listening in! We are currently playing Utsav Lal - The Fluid Piano "Raga Todi". The fluid piano is a modified piano of his design, allowing micro-tonal tunings and note bending, so can be used to play raga and many other non-western forms. Darned cool sound!!

1:48 PM, September 2nd, 2018
I'll say! Very spacey. Litter box, done! Dishes, Done!

Oops! A correction. The Fluid Piano (tm) was actually created by Geoff Smith back in 2009. Lal was the premier performer on it, in 2012, debuting raga on the instrument. This is the only recording I am aware of. Sure hope there will be more.

Looks like I need to refresh comments to see new entries.

Hi again Peter. Yeah, refresh required every now and then, both for comments and for on-the-fly playlists. Old site used to auto-refresh, new one does not. ;^/

Ed Kingscote
The two tracks I played for fill-in were The Guvna from The Imagined Village's 2012 album Bending the Dark on ECC records, and Chakal from Go Lem System and their 2002 album Viaje on the K-Industria label. It was fun and a pleasure to provide a little bit of cover and I hope everyone enjoyed the two tracks I played.

COOOL!!! Thanks again sooo much Ed, for the emergency back-fill while I was delayed. I will add these to the posted playlist presently. This is how community radio works best. ;^)
