I’m taking this week off from Planet Waves FM. It seemed time to take a little breather. Next week, I’ll feature two outstanding Geminis: the life of photojournalist Weegee Fellig, as well as the music and the chart of Laurie Anderson. We have two new features we’re adding to PW FM: One is a streaming loop of many archived shows, which you’ll be able to click on any time and dive into the project somewhat randomly.
It’s often been said that when the student is ready, the teacher arrives — and in that spirit, I’m here to introduce you to Kasia Urbaniak. A former dominatrix who was once paid $64,000 for a ten-minute session (her job while putting herself and her sister through university), Kasia now teaches women’s empowerment workshops. Tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM is a double-header, wherein two full segments are devoted to a conversation I had with Kasia last night. That segment begins at 1 hour and 40 minutes if you want to skip right to it.
Tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM looks at the interesting inner-planet activity at the moment (summed up in Monday’s edition of Planet Waves). This includes Mercury, Venus and Mars all making aspects to outer planets before changing signs and forming a magnificent pattern from about June 4 through June 10.
Tonight, celebrating the 69th birthday of Brian Eno, Planet Waves FM is a tribute to his music, as well as to art and sex. We’ll hear music spanning about 30 years of Brian’s career, from his early solo days to the early 21st century, including one movement of Music For Airports, covered by the virtuoso ensemble, Bang on a Can.
Tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM focuses on Beltane, though first I describe the current, highly and deeply unusual Mercury station direct in Aries. That takes place Wednesday [view chart here].
With the approaching end of Venus retrograde and Venus conjunct Chiron, tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM is about the Divine Feminine. This means something different to everyone. What it means to me is a healing and creative source at the core of both cosmos and psyche, that’s available to us all the time.
Today is the 49th anniversary of the murder of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. In tonight’s program, after I cover the current astrology, I look at Dr. King’s chart, I talk about the now well-known FBI conspiracy to destroy him, and then I play 30 minutes of his speech linking the civil rights movement to the anti-war movement. That was 50 years ago today, on April 4, 1967.
