PDT (10:00p.m.-1:00am EDT) for a station called It's Jazz, "hip/hop" R&B and Poetry all mixed into a blend that really does put you in an altered state. Log on and give it a listen and you'll see what I mean. ( Oh, by the way, the show used to be called "De Joyn't" and may still be listed that way on the Killradio masthead. so look for the old name too in case you have any trouble finding it.)

8. Speaking of Radio programs: My New friend Doug Curry does a show called "Blacks and Blues" Here's the link: I'm not sure if it can be heard Nationally Like Boomer's show or not but it IS on line too. Check it out and let me know. It airs locally in Rochester, NY on Fridays 9pm-Saturday 12am on WXXI RAIDO WRUR 88.5

Whew! Lots of stuff this time! I guess I'm going to need that carpal tunnel work after all! LOL! Anyway, I don't really think I can fit a poem in here this week but here are the book links:
