Music heals!!! ¡La musica cura!
BEBOP, CUBOP & THE MUSICAL TRUTH w/Avotcja (pronounced Avacha) every
Tuesday on www.KPFA.org or 94.1FM from 8PM to 10PM in the beautiful city of
Berkeley, CA., CA. And on Tuesday October 25th I’ll be speaking with Musician/
Composer / Band Leader ERIK JEKABSON, who has a brand new CD & several
Gigs coming up. Then it’s an interview with REBECCA DuMAINE & DAVE MILLER
who also have a new CD & will be appearing The Sound Room Downtown Oakland,
CA this Friday October 28th. I admit it… I’ve got a Music Jones that just won’t quit
& I’d love it if you’d hang out with me. For me, it’s all about the Music, the healing
power of melody & the joy of sound. And on Tuesday October 25th I’ll be bringing
you the best of my magical musical medicine from the audio-temple of Bebop &
Cubop. Save the date because I’d be pretty lonely without you. Invite a friend or two
& I’ll meet you on the Airwaves Tuesday October 25th on www.KPFA.org or 94.1FM at 8PM!
