Hey everybody, as many of you know our long time friend Philadelphia DJ and folk radio legend Gene Shay has retired from WXPN.
As one of Gene’s favorite acts, we were asked to send a video greeting for his tribute party last month at Ardmore Music Hall.
We heard it got some laughs at the show, so here’s our ‘bon voyage’ to Gene… – Tink

Stephen Hawking – He’s A “Force of Nature”

Breaking News! ”21 Songs For The 21st Century”

Since the start of 2015, Joziah has been pushed by his imaginary friends to release “21 Songs For The 21st Century” in an effort to get some of the endless flow of songs that keep coming down to him out to you, our beloved Slambovians.

These songs, he thinks, will be “in the rough” –  live video performances of various songs that he currently or recently has been working on. There may be songs from the new Slambovian Circus of Dreams album (possibly due in September,) the Joziah and The Remnant project, from the musical he’s working on called “Very Unusual Heads” or from the China project he’s been writing called “The Costume of Ch’ien” or possibly from something he doesn’t even know he’s doing yet.

Anyway, it should be an adventure of some sort or another or maybe it won’t happen at all. So stay tuned…
He may even post a song a week at times – but we’ll see…
(It should be faster than he’s previously got songs out up to this point in time, yay!)
If nothing else happens, here’s this – the first of  “21 Songs For The 21st Century”:
Stephen Hawking (Force of Nature) – Song #1

(Shot live on the stage in the living room with two iPhones and some swirly lights.)
“Force of Nature” is a song inspired by the nature of the universe and its effect on brilliant scientists like Stephen Hawking. It is the first release of 21 Songs for the 21st Century. The biopic of Mr Hawking, ‘The Theory of Everything’ is nominated for ‘Best Picture’ and should be bringing home a few Oscars from the 2015 Academy Awards Feb. 22, 2015. Hats off to you Mr. Hawking!
