Carson's enthusiasm for funk started many, many years ago with his first listening of Funkadelic's album Maggot Brain. He was, of course, already aware of the the genre of funk, and, like most people, familiar with James Brown and his hits on commercial radio.
That first listen to Maggot Brain in the basement of 420 Fletcher Court opened a door in in his mind, and what he found on the other side of that door, felt right - like a missing part that he was not previously aware he had been missing . . . you know that feeling?
Yes that was a long time ago and since then the funxploration has spread wide and gone deep.
The Furious Fists of Funk show is recorded on his iMac at home whenever the spirit of funk propels him. His real voice is modified to optimize funkiness--sorta reminiscent of the intro to Red Hot Mamma (the album version) from Standing On The Verge of Getting It On. Channeling this spirit, the Carson never identifies himself because of his not knowing.
Get funky and stay up past 10pm on Thursdays for the Furious Fists of Funk.
Beer is as commonplace as can be, yet so many people really know so little about it. Join Ginger Johnson, host of BeerRadio, as she talks live with people from all over the beer community every week. You'll be entertained, learn plenty, and have fun doing so.
Ginger is the founder of Women Enjoying Beer, a research driven education and marketing company headquartered in Southern Oregon. BeerRadio and being part of KSKQ is a perfect complement to this work, which serves the female beer consumer and the professional beer community helping them properly market beer to women.
"KSKQ has provided a superb setting to launch a radio program," Johnson says. She'd been long thinking of doing something like that when she heard KSKQ folks talk about it at a local business meeting. "Perfect! I get to learn, hone my skills and talk with great people about beer - all on our local community supported radio station."
Tune in every Wednesday 5 - 6 PST for BeerRadio. The archives are available 24/7, thanks to other KSKQ folks.
Cheers to radio, beer and free speech.
