(Could you repeat the question by using a diminished 7th?)
Today, on Station KKUP's "Vibrational Voyage" program,
Dr. Mike Hyson and Ms. Paradise Newland graciously placed a long
distance call and contributed interviews & ideas to this broadcast
hosted by Tony McGettigan here in Santa Clara. Happily, they shared
information about their ventures in underwater acoustic recordings
Come to find out, they're pushing the new standard for Top 40
As a side note, I was also in the studio and while there... I was
able to share words of wisdom by Mary Jo Rice and offered Senator
Feinstein's phone number more than once. (Thanks for that one, Mary
Also worth mentioning - Tony, in his wise old ways, drove up our
listening audience's ratings by having an interview with an
articulate sex worker just prior to the interview. (Way to get those
Democrats in action, Tony! )
And of course, to illustrate how much people treasure their Cetacean
friends, Michael and Paradise told everyone about their dream of
a Cetacean Commonwealth.
Come to find out,
there are numerous resources at
and there, we're told, you can also catch the latest Cetacean recordings.
The whales, dolphins and porpoises will get royalties for the profits
made - so get excited about this idea.
Except... catch this action! It's not a recording OF dolphins,
whales and porpoises. It's a recording BY them!
Dr. Hyson and his effulgent mad hatter crowd have devised a method
of providing acoustic instrumentation to all of Cetacea!
And what do the dolphins, whales and porpoises think of this new
instrumentation with playback speakers underwater?
Apparently, one can only conclude that these guys think they need
more rehearsal - because they keep coming back for more.
Want an explanation of what that means? Go to www.planetpuna.com
and somewhere on the main page -
there is the answer. I asked repeatedly for a more specific link...
but that's the best I could get.
I'm told there
is a link to the musical recordings of these "pod
players;" as this quintessential group of musicians may be
called - and that it can be readily located....
although I would be happy to post a direct link anytime. Anyway,
there is a new musical language that's taking the sea by storm!
Thanks again to Michael and Paradise for sharing a vision of joy
in the midst of alerts and warnings.
As ever, Cheryl
Thank you Cheryl! Mahalo
