Katzuma.org, Radio FunkWise: playlist complete!

15 06 2010

C’era una volta una radio…

Che diavolo di incipit è? Lo so, è scontatissimo e ha poco a che fare con un post, ma è seriamente il principio di una fiaba: il mio viaggio verso il Funk (nel senso più lato possibile).

La radio si chiamava “FunkWise” ed era in streaming dal sito Katzuma.org, la metamorfosi (c’è mai stata?) di Deda che iniziava a dare i primi, indispensabili frutti. Ancora mi ricordo qualcosa del vecchio layout del sito, dei suoi contenuti (il video con la falena in stop motion, il tabagigi -o qual’era il suo nome- per le somministrazioni a Kaos…), ma se c’è qualcosa che mi rimase davvero impresso, fu senz’altro la radio.

Sarà stato il 2003, 2004 o giù di lì, sono passati sei anni fondamentali che son stati una rivoluzione per me, mi era stato appena consegnato un biglietto di sola andata nelle direzioni della ricerca.

“Il primo amore non si scorda mai”, dicono, e questo è un piccolo omaggio a cui penso e lavoro da svariati mesi, da quando ho ritrovato su un mio hard disk -quasi per caso- ben dodici tracklist. In quel momento è nata l’idea e poco dopo è cominciata la ricerca (da soulseek fino all’acquisto di vinili) e l’upload su youtube di tutti i pezzi.

Finalmente ho completato tutto, anche se alcune tracklist (come quella di “Blatta ci cova”) mancano all’appello. Come sempre, la vostra collaborazione è graditissima… sarete amati da tutti :-)

Felice di condividere:

Hello, I’m new to blogging and internet sites in general and was wanting to know how you got the “www” included in your web address name? I see your web address, “http://lanozionedeltempo.com/2010/06/15/katzuma-org-radio-funkwise-playlist-complete/” has the www and my web address looks like, “http://mydomain.com”. Do you know the way I can alter this? I’m using WordPress.
Warm regards
