Wheel of Wonder, July 12th, 2009

This week on Wheel of Wonder, I'll feature the first installation in a many part mini-series called "Bardic Byways." What is a Bard? An old English guy who writes plays? Any Entertainer who performs in public? Or is it a chosen Path to ancient knowledge in the post-Industrial World? Originally the Bards were the disseminators of knowledge throughout the ancient world. Now in the world of the internet and immediate information 24/7 what should a Bard be now? How can the Bardic interpretation of the world, help us as a people? These ideas are what we'll begin to explore on Wheel of Wonder this week. We'll talk with Jane Valencia, Bardic Harper from San Francisco, CA and we'll feature new music from Sharon Knight and other Pagan and even non-pagan modern Bards in our many music and storysinging sets. Its a journey within the journey that is Wheel of Wonder.

  1. Hi Ray,

    Thank you so much for inviting me onto your program. You offer many insightful questions and comments! I look forward to listening to your future "Bardic Byway" series, and more! Blessings to you on your own Bardic journey. It seems to me that you indeed embody the 21st century bard as the vision and voice of "Wheel Of Wonder"!
