The Taste of Consciousness creates a platform for the vanguards of Roots Reggae, the King’s Music. Each show features a variety of songs by men & women with the common aspiration of truth, justice, righteousness, harmony, balance, order and reciprocity--fundamentally constructive change through word, sound and power.
“The Bambu King” Selecta’ A.D. is a Washington D.C. native who has championed reggae music for over 15 years. He comes locked and loaded with extra clips and a musical flamethrower, ready to rain down a barrage of sonic booms on any weak heart wanting to impede the path of progress. As I-Roy would say, “Don’t check me with no lightweight stuff.” Selecta' A.D. doesn't disarm for anyone. Only the finest rock hard, roots & culture reggae will suffice. Keeping with the ever changing times, Selecta’ A.D. moves forward ever, backwards never, making this a modern Roots Reggae Groundation. Each show features up and coming talents from Jamaica, The Virgin Islands, Trinidad, Guyana, Hawaii, New Zealand and even a selection of Homegrown artists.
For any fan of Real Reggae Music: the Taste of Consciousness is Haile recommended. All Killer; No Filler.
Tune in Wednesdays from 2 to 4 pm.
Composer and performance artist Aletha Nowitzky (alias Ma Cappella) has been caught red-handed in a giggle of intriguing venues, not to mention costumes. Her motto, "Be what you want to see!" has goaded Aletha into past shifts of shape such as a mermaid in a fountain, a fairy on a tree stump, an angel in a living nativity, and an animal rejoicing on Saint Francis' Day in the "Church of Harmania", each spouting a strange and wacky wisdom that is unique to their collective creator.
Aletha's latest imaginarrative happens right here at KSKQ with her show, "Tasty Topics and Tantalizing Tunes." This fine show airs every Saturday morning from 10 to 11 a.m. and focuses on health and well being and other fun stuff! It's a collage of uplifting music, light-hearted discussion, poetry, raw food recipes, InnerViews, and other thought-provoking, entertaining inspiration! Aletha invites one and all to become her Dear Listeners, and join her on a heaventriloquest through Saturday morning, as she beams loving sound to everyone on the planet!
Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.
Building Bridges is produced and hosted by Mimi Rosenberg and Ken Nash.
Tune in to Building Bridges on Mondays, 10:30-11 am.
