Ed eats his bowl of crow after swearing up and down that LeBron would not sign with Cleveland. Well, he signed with Cleveland as Fuz predicted. The guys discuss all the changes in the NBA - from Chandler Parson's leaving for Dallas to Chris Bosh & Carmelo Anthony staying with their respective team. The guys will also take one last look at the World Cup, as Ed lawyer's up for Leo Messi and the the attacks against his sense of sportsmanship, while Fuz still mourns the Dutch choking again and Arjen Robben's penchant for flopping. Lastly, the guys tee-off on the MLB All-Star game and Monday's lackluster Home Run Derby.

With the passing of Charlie Haden, many of us are focused on those in the music business whose instrument is the bass. We can all probably name five off the top of our heads who really get our juices flowing - or those with whom we feel an indescribable connection. JUST because of the way they play.
Enter Jimmy Haslip! One of the Masters of the Art of Bass, Jimmy was born in the Bronx. And Spanish was his first language. He learned to speak English later. But the way that he makes his bass speak? There is ONE language - and that's universal :) But let's give you a rewind as to how he got to that level...
Jimmy's family moved to Huntingdon, New York, when he was four. Hearing all kinds of music in the house, he was drawn to the sound of multiple instruments - and he was playing drums, trumpet and tuba early on. But the bass captured his interest. And, at 13, he got one - but here's the kicker: since he was left-handed and since a bass for right-handers was available, Jimmy learned to play it upside down!
1969: Our guest left NY to make his musical path in San Fran, New Orleans, Denver and Dallas. He finally moved to L.A. in 1975 - there he got together with Russell Ferrante and Robben Ford - and they formed the nucleus of players who created "The Inside Story" - Robben's first album.
The strength of that buzz paved the way for the formation of The Yellowjackets in 1980 - Jimmy was a founding member. And it doesn't take a genius to figure out that his way from THERE was gold. In case you might not know - he has had some 21 Grammy nominations - and worked with artists in diverse genres. You can ask Jeff Lorber how he could get along without Jimmy Haslip - the success of "Hacienda" says a LOT!
We'll share music and talk gigs - hang with us on 7/15!

As South Africa and the rest of the world mourns the death of President Nelson Mandela, we pay tribute to this peace warrior. Paul Lawrence Vann discusses the life and legacy of Mr. Mandela provides an open forum for listeners to call in and share what Mr. Mandela's life meant and means to them, South Africa and the world.
This episode focuses on how a man from a tribe in South Africa boldly fought for freedom and equality for himself and other oppressed people. Mr. Mandela exemplified what is possible when we live a principled life while embracing opposition in a way to win them over and achieve one's ultimate destiny...FREEDOM.
Mr. Mandela was a freedom fighter of the highest order, he and the African National Congress were not only considered terrorist for fighting for what they were birthed with by our creator, which is a free will, but he was also imprisoned for 27 years at Robben Island.
Through it all, Mr. Mandela commanded respect and received it, always knowing and having the confidence that one day he and others would be freed from the physical prison. His prison to presidency marks an epic turning point in the annals of world history and with his recent passing. Paul Lawrence Vann help listeners better understand how we can make a difference in the lives of others, just as Mr. Mandela did.

2nd Hour Robert Knight's "Mandela in America" Tribute, WBAI-fm New York City, NY
South Africa’s legendary leader Nelson “Madiba” Mandela was laid to rest this week after an armed struggle against apartheid that earned him 27 years of imprisonment, leadership of the African National Congress, a political victory for the nation’s majority black population, and his election as South africa’s first non-white president.
In this “Five O’Clock Shadow” tribute to Mandela, we recall his triumphal visit to the United States shortly after his release from the Robben Island prison. We hear Mandela’s historic address to the United Nations, and his tumultuous speech to a capacity crowd at the Oakland Coliseum in June, 1990, four years before his election as president of South Africa.
What a man! Meet the people who influenced the evolution of Madiba Nelson Mandela. With a life so rich, so full - 95 years - any attempt to single out a moment or an experience or any one stop along his remarkable journey as the stand alone of who Madiba is robs that person, defrauds that cause, and bars that observer from the wealth of a grand life - one from which we are all otherwise easily enriched. A tribute.
