Though it's cold in DC right now, the globe is warming. In this Deedlecast, some like it hot, some find the heat of summer cruel, a few may even find their roof is on fire, some may even take their clothes off.
One interesting anecdote about this Deedlecast is that it features an original DJDeedle mashup of a song by Kofi B, a popular highlife musician from Ghana. DJDeedle had the good fortune to hear Kofi B on a friendly New York cab driver's cd player. Your dj, ever searching for the best music for Deedlecast, learned everything he could about Kofi B and his music in the time it took to get from Penn Station uptown to Columbia University. Because music is a universal language, this friendly cab driver and DJDeedle chatted like old friends.
If you happen to be tuning in, friendly NY cab driver, thanks for exposing me to Kofi B, and please let me know if what I've done to his tunes amuses.

It's time to slow down, relax, take off all the harsh edges. DJDeedle presents a Pan-Sonic Incident, capturing the rich, warm sound not often present in the age of digital jazz and hip-hop.
Although DJDeedle hasn't bought into this theory yet: for decades, audiophiles have believed that any sound piped through an amplifier using fragile, short-lived vacuum tubes becomes silkier and richer, even digital sound, and sound in compressed formats like mp-3. Your humble DJ would be interested in hearing from any Deedlecast listener who happens to use a vacuum tube-based amplifier to listen to today's offering.

Very likely by the time you are reading this, the long suffering one and I will be well on our way to our annual pilgrimage to Kauai.
No need to worry, though. Your superstar DJ has stocked up on Deedlecasts; and you can count on your weekly episodes even while DJDeedle basks on the beach.

What's this funny music on Deedlecast? Shaking things up a bit, a rock show is what we've got for you. A rock n' roll Deedlecast? It may smell a little funny for a Deedlecast, but a little rock and metal is nice for a change.
Note: This rock show may have a couple of foul smelling words in it.

When the day's over and city's asleep and quiescent, DJDeedle finds his muse. Most people count sheep when they can't sleep. DJDeedle counts beats and measures.
This week's creation of Deedle insomnia is designed to remind you why we were all sleepless in the 80s.
