Do you remember the first concert you ever went to?
The word concert may not fully and at all times relate to the new age genre. One can be in the presence of a "Soulful Musician" one on one or in a small gathering and yet walk away with lasting impressions such as attending a pow wow.
As a teenager in India, [1975-1979] - I recall many small intimate settings in many villages; where "the sounds and the intent behind the music" was much felt - shaping my character and current lifestyle!
Anything else you want KRCL listeners to know?
While filling out the KRCL application forms eons ago, [27 yrs]- before there was such a term as World Music, in an attempt to expose the listeners to sounds of different cultures; and to do my part in uniting the world by softening the public ears to the seeming strange vocals/music; I recall, coining the term, "Music that is non-threatening to the ear", to best explain the programs I was about to produce for this local Community Radio Station in Utah.
Now 27 years into doing the multiple programs; its manifest, the healing vibrations of this genre and the programs. Music that is both for the spiritual tourist as well as the faithful, loyal, devoted mystic.
