Moondog's Later Years . . .

Hi everyone,

Moondog was Louis Thomas Hardin, a strange, long-lived composer who lived on the streets of New York City for many years from the late 1940s to the early '70s, before moving to Germany in his later years. 

The music on this show is from those later years, a variety of pieces that concludes with Moondog's last live concert on August 1, 1999, a few weeks before he died. Moondog is one of a kind, and it's a pleasure to share his music, especially with those who have not heard it before.

On My 6th Anniversary Show: Flying Lotus Says . . . You're Dead!

Hi everyone,

Flying Lotus is Steven Ellison from LA, and has released 5 albums. They are a wondrous melange of electronic, hip hop, jazz, R&B. He lost some loved ones recently, including Aunt Alice Coltrane (!), and so had mortality on his mind but, wow! what beautiful affirming music!

Six years of my show! Long live SPRadio! :)
