Wheel of Wonder October 14, 2012

Wow!  Summer stretched this year clear into mid-October.  Forest Fires even started getting a bit out of hand for Humans in the Northwest corner of what modern Bards call Turtle Island.  Thankfully, the rain has returned and things are shaping up to be an honest and admirable Autumn.

Lady Autumn claims the leaves from the trees
A sacrifice to feed future seeds
The Green Man reaches towards the blue
A sigh of silver, the cold wind blows through
Each Tree Spirit, more grand than me
boughs their head in this dance of leaves
So many birds, their dance, the dance of spring
they hear distant summer songs, and take to the wing
to follow pathways created by the errant breeze
Parties in emerald ballrooms is how they wish their winters away
crisp golden carpets do not offer them homes in which to stay.
But those in the tangles where green and yellow meet
they stay to remind us of Spring's magic feet.
We Humans must observe this, or how could Autumn ever be
more than death and dying, a moribund scene
but a song, or a movement, in life's changing symphony

---Ray (Mabon 2012)

I enjoy the Autumn very much, always seemed to me a time for change, not death.  A time for new things.  This week on Wheel of Wonder I hope to bring new music from Sharon Knight, Wendy Rule, and other indy artists.  As the world is all a great place of interconnectedness, I expect within these expressions to find a message that flows through the waves of song and connects then with a common thread, and I look forward to sharing that with you.  Thank you to those who called in last week during the KAOS Fall membership drive, please consider donating if you haven't, I cannot think of very many free form radio stations out there  besides the one I'm allowed to bring you Wheel of Wonder on!  KAOS is so commited to Free Form Radio, they've lost several corporate sponsors, because they won't "change to a more regular format" (Like all Jazz, Classical, or House Music) as some public stations do.  This Indy Media could use your support (Would you ever expect to hear Wheel of Wonder on NPR really?). 
 As always, if there is something you would really like to talk about/research/share on Wheel of Wonder, or some incredible independent music you'd like me to play email me, please at: or post on this blog.  Thank you for listening!
Next Week on Wheel of Wonder, I'll be doing my part to bring you the broadcast for the Annual Homelessness Marathon  on KAOS 89.3fm
