Born today, saxophonist David S. Ware (1949 - 2012). Ware's career began in the early 70s and he played with avant garde and jazz luminaries Cecil Taylor, William Hooker, Butch Morris, Arthur Blythe, Sam Rivers, Rashied Ali, and led a small group with Matthew Shipp and William Parker for decades.
Happy birthday to Joni Mitchell, born today in 1943! If you are looking for a way in to Joni's massive discography and you like jazz, try the records from the mid to late 70s that include collaborations with Jaco Pastorius, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny and Charles Mingus.
Born today, Algerian-French author and philosopher Albert Camus (1913-1960). Camus won the Nobel prize in literature at the age of 44, and was killed at the age of 46 in a car accident in France. Camus' philosophy was known to be "absurdist". Here are selections inspired by Camus' books L'Etranger (The Stranger or The Outsider), La Peste (The Plague), and La Chute (The Fall).
Please note that the title of the song by The Cure refers to a scene in L'Etranger that talks about The Stranger... "Standing on a Beach" (the name of a Cure compilation). In 1979, the book "The Stranger" was sent to media by Polydor during the promo campaign. In 1986, a sticker on North-American releases says:
"The song Killing An Arab has absolutely no racist overtones whatsoever. It is a song which decries the existence of all prejudice and consequent violence. The Cure condemn its use in furthering anti-Arab feeling."
The group L'Etranger includes "Chuck" Angus on bass. Charlie Angus has been a federal Member of Parliament for the riding of Timmins—James Bay for the NDP since 2004.
We close with a message for Donald J.

|On November 14, 1975, Canadian radio history was made. When the strains of Joni Mitchell’s “You Turn Me On, I’m a Radio” transmitted over the airwaves at 93.1 FM, CKCU became the first campus-based community radio station in the country. I really love Joni Mitchell so it was hard to just choose one song! I plan to do a full Joni show on a future edition of Heavy Friends.
CKCU will be 45 in week from tonight so tune in to hear Heavy Ben host a 45 extravaganza show!
