following the above tracks comes a sprawling, repetitive, impassioned but only marginally coherent rant which proves that I should either only read from pre-written texts or drink less before the rants if they’re to make sense.

The main points buried in the sprawl:

I’m sure that the only Paradise we can never be expelled from is music – that G-d can banish us from the Paradises of words, of irony and humor, of visual awe, but we always carry music inside us, it can never be exorsized, even if we go deaf, even those born deaf have music inside…

That with the illusion that just about every bit of recorded music is available to us for free through the internet machine (it’s really only a small fraction of a small fraction of recorded music, but it’s still more than we can ever listen to in this lifetime…) it seems to me that it’s more important to listen to taint radio and some on-air radio shows as a method of hearing music taken out of the cacophony and really getting to listen to it, having pieces pointed out and made sense of….   in terms of taint radio, I listen to Rafi’s show because of the quality of the music he chooses and the passion of what he has to say about it, usually changing how I hear the music, I listen to Brian’s show because he plays musics I never knew even existed, and to Bob’s show because he plays music from creative musicians whose names are in the air, but that most of us have never taken the time or effort to check them out and really listen.  I also mention Thomas Stanley’s, Larry Applebaum’s  and Jim Byer’s shows, all of which are on WPFW, close to where I live.  I should also point out Felix Contreras’ work on NPR as a guide to important musics you’d miss, buried in the cacophony.
