2003 BOOK - READ by DJZZ OVER THE HOLIDAYS - ANOTHER MUST READ FOR BACK-IN-THE-DAY NEW WORLD AFRICAN MUSIC AFFICIONADOS ! ! - "BOOGALOO" -
2010 IS FIVE DAYS AWAY - BUT we got ONE LAST GROOVIN' BLUE FOR 2009 HEADIN' YOUR WAY - - - FIRST HERE'S A BROTHER NAMED VEL OMARR . . . . .
This song originally sung by the wonderful one Mr. Sam Cooke, embodies the clearing of eyes and the casting of hopes to the far horizon. A shore now made more plainly visible by accomplishments seen and positive inner strengths successfully attuned.
In 2010 I can only hope that WAGRadio puts a hop in your hip and a pop in your skip.
You all have been steadily increasing in listening numbers - but that's not the most important thing to us here at the station that never sleeps . . . except when we get really tired and can't stay up anymore. What we get our kicks from is that you and us are diggin' the music together. This New World African Music that is our music cuz we luv it in our bones and brains and hasn't got a lot to do with what the masses are told people today are diggin'!
