motherfunk #42 – Famous Last Words
So here it is: the final episode of motherfunk, my monthly Funk radio show on BLN.fm. For the farewell show I uncover the mystery of the music used for the motherfunk intro and outro jingles. Of course I could not resist to play some Level 42 in this 42nd show and to read from „The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy“ about the answer to the question of the meaning of life, the universe and everything else.
Unfortunately, there is once again a tribute to a Funk hero: on April 1st Frankie Knuckles dies, the Godfather of House. He was a major contributor to create House music out of Funk, Electro and many other genres. He will remain unforgotten, and so will his music. Motherfunk will feature some of the most funky remixes by Frankie Knuckles.
I would like to say „Thank You“ to the whole BLN.fm team for ist continuous support of motherfunk. To all the engineers, who have helped record the show and became a vital part of the production: Lars Löffler, Micha Viol, Marcel Cloidt und of course BLN.fm head honcho Tim Thaler.
And a big thank you to all the listeners. I hope that you could discover exciting new tunes and artists and rediscover immortal classics.
I am more than happy to announce that this is not the end yet: the show must and will go on: motherfunk will be replaced by my very own music 4 the microglobe, where I will present House, Techno and Electronica, exactly the kind of music that I play in my regular DJ sets, the music that inspires me for my own prodcutions and that most people asscoate me with. But of course there’ll be always a nod to BoogieHouse and NuFunk, so the borders between motherfunk and music 4 the microglobe will be pretty much fluid.
This show has been running on other stations already since one year and you check and listen to the first 12 shows >>HERE<<.
music 4 the microglobe will be live every third Thursday of the month at 6 pm CET (Berlin time) on BLN.fm, with German presentation. In case you missed it there or would prefer an English presentation instead, you may tune in to cuebase-fm on the same day at 9 pm CET or listen to XLTRAX from Canada every Thursday 11pm EDT (Montreal time).
And now, for the very last time: Boogie down funksters!!!
