I’m using various cuts from both Rahsaan Roland Kirk and Miles Davis in the background for these excerpts from interviews i did a while ago with Street Sex Workers.
Yes, she is taking a bath in my bathtub while i’m interviewing her.
Hey, nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors
…and my essence is that of a Recordist. Like a war photographer, i will get the story.
So, we’re gonna go from this view of a segment of Cape Town reality to an interview i did the other night with a cab driver who drove me home late one night.
But first the final comment from the Worker.
Right after Rahsaan and crew finish ThemeFor The Eulipions
This is Trevor the Cab Driver by night and like so many others, many other things by day, including an expert on Baseball.
This is PlanBe Soul Housing Project from a couple of weeks back.
Authentic Cape Town Music…
Since it’s only Pam and me in the studio right now, we are programming these transmissions.
You have hear what that means so far with the street interviews of a Sex Worker and then an interview with a cab driver on Baseball.
Now Pam is about to put on a morning movie on Afro-Punk, as it is called.
I do know, have seen some of the acts: Fishbone, 24-7 Spyz, Bad Brains…
Being music director of a New York radio station tends to broaden your horizons.
