SORT BY Relevancy
in Indie Music
Many have been attributed as being the kings of funk, or the baddest bassist around. But in the industry, this man put the "P" into funk and took it to another level! Lige Curry, bassist for multi platinum and various award winning Funk group Parliament Funkadelic, is responsible for those amazing bass lines on every P-Funk Jam you can name. It was his skillful thumps, slaps, and riffs that drew our attention to the made us want to know how our Funkintelechy was. As a veteran in the industry, he has seen many a group come and go, yet theirs has been a mainstay for over 3 decades. But the Funk does not stop there! Lige Curry and The Naked Funk have been in the studio cooking up some extended funk in a brand and style all their own. AND IT'S READY TO SERVE!
Join me as I sit down with the Thumpasaurus Lige Curry in part 2 of his interview. We will talk shop, stink up the airwaves with some Funk, and have a smelly good time!!

Press  for Democracy (P1FD) is a Coffee Party Radio show that discusses the political issues of the day in a civil, fact-based, and transpartisan manner. Transpartisan is quite different from bi- or non-partisan in the we encourage callers to be passionate about their positions, but also that they listen and respond to those with differing points of view repsectfully and with a true desire to find common ground on which solutions can be built.
Tonight on P1FD . . .
Although he passed away earlier this year, Tony Benn dedicated nearly half a centrury fighting for the common man as a leading figure of the Labour Party in Great Britain's Parliment. We'll review his philosphies, arguments, and listen to a few of the epic speeches he gave decrying the corportocracy that rules today in Great Britain just as it does here. And then we'll ask, where is America's Tony Benn.

This weeks guest: Hon. Gregory Mair, Opposition ministry of Commerce, Industry, and Energy.
Mr. Mair has raised many questions and concerns about the Goat Islands. His motion (Feb. 2014) for the Goat Islands development matter to be referred to Parliament's Infrastructure and Physical Development Committee so that it could take the necessary steps to enquire into the benefits or losses that the nation could incur if any part of the Portland Bight Protected Area were to become part of the logistics hub.
Mr. Mair also called on the Government to put on hold any final agreement with China Harbour Engineering Company for the development of a logistics hub until Parliament received and deliberated on the report from the Infrastructure and Development Committee.
Mr. Mair expressed serious concern with the level of secrecy that has from the inception surrounded the Goat Islands matter and is expecting that in the name of transparency and good governance the issue be made public. To date Mr. Mair as well as the campagin await parliment to take up the matter. We will be asking about how he see's the currnet status of the proposed development, about the summation of Mr. Davies address's to Parlaiment about the proposed project..

That would be an apt question in Palestinian politics.
Most of the talk is coming from others rather than President Abbas. He seems to be in hiding or trying to get something concrete to give his country more stability and fire up Palestine for this election coming in less than 6 months. My hope is he and the other leaders of Palestine, those exiled too, can, first, bring peace between factions, create a sound policy making Israel keep to agreements and not be killed or jailed in the meantime because nearly a third of his parliment is in "administative detention" which means no visitors nor lawyer representation for up to 6 months and can be extended "till Hell freezes over."
