Whirled Peas Café Radio Playlist: Sept 27th, 2010

Musical Comfort Food with a World of Spice

Special Guests from the Prison Sangha Buddhist Group, an outreach of the Shawnee Dharma Group, Randy Osborn and Scott Rogers picked out the first nine songs on the list. I deem that comfort food for most of our listeners. We will have to have them back again for some more turns of the mixer. Most of the callers were interested in what they had to say. And they had plenty to tell us about their experiences in mediation and Buddhism and volunteer work at the prison. To become a volunteer and/or find out more about the program, contact Randy Osborn <randiwickoz(at)yahoo.com> or 925-3403 and Scott Rogers <dharmavet(at)yahoo.com or 534-3880 .

For myself, I think I could have done another whole show just questioning them on Lama Chuck’s Tibetan Buddhist course for prison inmates. Shawnee Dharma Group shares some real estate space as well as cyberspace with the SIU Student Fellowship and  Sunyata Center. The Sunyata Center has a line up of nation lecturers from a variety of Buddhist schools and traditions.

James is on hiatus. So I got in an extra half hour of music before the premiere of Big Muddy News Radio in their new time slot. James will return with Dude, Where’s My Coffee in a couple of weeks…and hopefully it won’t take that long for my voice to return. Thank you all for your listening patience on that score.

One seriously cool DJ!

Nothing fazes this guy, not even a fire in the booth!

I’m just guessing, but I’d translate the video as something like: “It’s our 2010 Fall Membership Drive! We’re awfully close to reaching our $12,000 goal now, so please call and make your pledge right away. Memberships start at $10– the stickers seem to have been claimed in a bush fire that has broken out behind me, but if you’d like a lump of charred plastic that used to be a coffee mug, you can claim it for just $50!”

Hello! He Said She Said will be covered tonight by DJ Mo and guest Dave X. I hate to miss one of my Saturday nights, but I’ll be getting my live music fix out at Riverside Park in Murphy for a little Pokey LaFarge and Neighborhood Co-Op picnicking! Brad has next Saturday night with his own mix of independent music fun. Miss Heather returns on October 9th with a full hour of Western Swing, among other delicious tidbits.
