The station, founded in 2010 by mainstream dropout, self-made buccaneer Shiva Arbabi, became over the last five years a trademark for finely selected playlists and shows by sincere music aficionados.

For this year’s festival dispatches a delegation of programme creators we welcome warmheartedly: First we get Jorge Spahn with his “Radio Free Bakersfield” show, featuring indie and unsigned bands covering Mexican surf, French rockabilly, Swiss garage, Chilean punk, Polish lounge, jazz, metal, Hawaiian, country, cowpunk & swing from five continents at last count.

Inner City Outer Space. SunRadio. Legendary Radio DJ Charles Blass. Sun Ra Tribute WKCR-FM May 2010. In response to a remark I made in a previous post, I was recently asked about Charles Blass, former program director at WKCR-FM (currently on sabbatical) and if it is possible to hear some of his Sun Ra radio broadcasts.

Sun Ra Tribute WKCR-FM May 2010

To my knowledge, none of WKCR's shows are archived. Fortunately, last spring I made an effort to record the Sun Ra Arrival Day celebration. In celebration of the anniversary of Sun Ra's arrival on planet earth, WKCR-FM broadcast 9 hours (in two parts) of Sun Ra's music on May 21st and 22nd, 2010. Unfortunately, I missed the first 4 hour segment but managed to record the stream for the 2nd part. I quickly realized that trying to manage a 5 hour track on an iPod isn't much fun so I broke down the show into 5 segments of approximately 1 hour each.
