2 a.m.: FFFoxy Podcast: Sun Ra On this episode of the podcast show (#37), we were joined in the studio by James Lindbloom who runs the Roaratorio label out of Minneapolis. We’ve been talking with James for years about having him be a guest on the show, and finally the weather and our schedules (etc.) were in sync. And his appearance on the show couldn’t have come at a more fitting time. As many already know, this past week marked the 100th anniversary of the arrival of Sun Ra on Earth, and Roaratorio’s most recent offering happens to be a previously unreleased album from Sun Ra & His Astro-Infinity Arkestra titled Other Strange Worlds - a unique and important entry to Ra’s massive catalog. So, in addition to playing a track and discussing details surrounding this release, James brought with him some other rarities from Sun Ra’s Saturn imprint that, to date, haven’t been reissued. We also spun a bunch of tracks from the Roaratorio catalog and discussed some forthcoming projects that the label has lined-up. Visit the Roaratorio website for more information and to order their many fine releases. See below for complete playlist for #37.
