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 disarming 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 Tuesdays from 4 to 6 pm.
SUSPENSE is a revival of a classic anthology series from radio's 'Golden Age.' The original SUSPENSE, which ran from 1942-1962, was known as "radio's outstanding theater of thrills," and featured a virtual who's who of Hollywood stars, from Boris Karloff and Joan Crawford to Cary Grant and Marlene Dietrich.
The new SUSPENSE started airing on Sirius XM in November of 2012, and today is on nearly 150 radio stations in the U.S., Canada and abroad. As a result, it's become not just America's #1 radio drama (surpassing the long-running Twilight Zone Radio Dramas), but one of the world's most widely-available anthology shows.
"We've tried to create a show that is faithful to the spirit of the original, but without being a copy," says Dana Perry-Hayes of Blue Hours Productions. "Our episodes are a mix of original scripts and adaptations of classic horror & mystery stories, most of which are from the pulp magazines of the first half of the 20th Century." "Like the show itself, the adaptations are faithful to the source material while still forging their own identity," adds John C. Alsedek of Blue Hours Productions. "Take our version of H.P. Lovecraft's Cool Air, for example…we kept all the horror of the original, but also added an emotional element-which, to my mind at least, makes the ending all the more horrific because we actually care what happens to the characters."
Each episode of SUSPENSE is done as a full-blown radio drama, not just a reading. The show is recorded in a state-of-the art studio in Hollywood, allowing Alsedek and Perry-Hayes "to create a show that sounds like what Orson Welles or Arch Oboler would have produced if they’d have had access to current technology." The production process is abetted by an experienced and talented group of voice talent, including Adrienne Wilkinson (Xena, The Clone Wars), Daamen Krall (The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari), Elizabeth Gracen (Highlander), and Tucker Smallwood (Star Trek: Enterprise). The end result is a program that has been described by listeners as "one of the best radio dramas available today" and "a throwback to a different time- truly unique."
Upcoming episodes include adaptations of Bram Stoker's The Judge’s House, Seabury Quinn's Pledged To The Dead, Algernon Blackwell's The Willows, and Robert E. Howard's Pigeons From Hell. Eighteen episodes are now online and available for download at Audible.com/BlueHours. For more information, visit www.suspenseradioshow.com, or check on twitter @BlueHours.
