We are still ringing with waves of Appreciation for all the Aloha, Arts, Foods, and Dance we absorbed n Kauai’i … and coming back to the Bay … we call it “reentry” ….as it is always a challenge, from traffic to just getting back in our respective saddles at home, school, and practice .. my particular entry was softened and charged up significantly by a few musical and art encounters … reconnecting with Carnaval King DJiJ

Please support the festival and its participants to the fullest..Wone pc back 1.1.13Rsm.jpgLOREZ

…if we have done it all right ..the Blesstival follows .. the music and invocations and joy goes UP .. and the skies listen … and the blessing come raining down… into our waking reality and our new heavy sleep and reflective revelatory dreams …

Speaking of sleep, our sleep is bustling … just enough, not really restorative, but it’s that season .. and those weeks of ramping up .. loading out to Cerrito Vista.  I awoke this am,  with a dream running,  showing me my own hands working the solution to a sign construction  task I had not yet consciously worked out..nice !

Thank you Main stage Artists and Carnaval performers  … Keepers of respective Culture and Arts .. worldOne and y’all do not have celebrity incomes… thank you for working within our volunteer, free setting, and artistic honoraria  …  Down Home reminds .. Real Musicians Drive Tractors (too!)

Alas, to our peril … the despair-depression-oppression-sexi-broody-vampire-penguin-antisocial-vanity-me-me-media- business seems to pay faaaar better in the short, brutish, ecocidal-spiricidal haul ..

When we began this worldOneradio+festival Musical Odyssey nearly 20 years ago ( Hey! a musical ! ), with all the elements of a proper Odyssey/Journey .. Corey honestly b e l i e v e d that Listeners, Artists, Sponsors, Soccer Moms, Labels, Industry Executives, Administrators of various stripes would receive our proposal and intention happily and enthusiastically, virtually immediately… it all seemed so fresh, upwelling , present. new and old, musipoetically interesting, eclectic, culturally nuanced, educative, affirming, and natural. That last part? is what apparently has taken nearly 20 years to catch on? amidst all the erstwhile socio-cultural inertia or spasms and deepening clamor, titillation, stroboscopes and weapons of mass distraction, TMI, information-overload of Modern Times, Race Babbling. (Our particular one more radio and festival option is certainly one kind of those).

20 years ago was when I had plenty of dark thick braided hair + a strong radio industry resume, and a car/van that was 20 years younger, to boot.  Well y’all know Corey felt compelled to immerse in Public Education, and simultaneously been “declined” by erstwhile industry radio, found a home for worldOneradio in little keCg, and @10 years subsequent, of course, online. The “Radio Industry” per say, was momentarily piqued but ultimately unmoved by worldOne overtures, internally reactive and broadly convulsive (due to the emergence of internet) , to the point where today I hardly recognize it, and likely vice versa. Life is a River and the river has moved on.

Just perhaps … perhaps akin to a JAZ musician who, perhaps, finds a somewhat broader and receptive/appreciative audience, after a few decades, usually afar, and sometimes nearby ?

And perhaps, Akin to Gandalf, who having battled, tilted, exhausted and surrendered … transcending and travelling across space and time returned (to you,us ) as Gandalf now a White Wizard ..

And just recently .. 6 time grammy Award Winning David Nesta got down and in conversation with the keCg Youth Crew

worldOnefestival 2014 is now on the summer horizon .. herewith announced for your enjoyment and planning ..

and thus we have much for which to be Grateful and much to look forward to .. yaymen !

When worldOneradio was concieved @ ‘94 ish .. I asked a consumately talented jazz friend, Mr. Rich Sigberman, to render his fine craft as Artist to create a modest, sincere invocation.. like a ketubah .. to visualize the intention for worldOneradio .. it resides in the center of our home sanctuary … along with images of objects that Rich observed while visiting in our thence SF home … a  micromacro image including Nike (the Goddess), a decahedron, cruciform, a cosmic dancing Tara, supernova heart + double bass ..  it is inscribed …. Raise Divine Sparks ..  

excerpted from

Isaac Luria, the renowned sixteenth century Kabbalist, used the phrase “tikkun olam,” usually translated as repairing the world, to encapsulate the true role of humanity in the ongoing evolution and spiritualization of the cosmos. Luria taught that God created the world by forming vessels of light to hold the Divine Light. But as God poured the Light into the vessels, they catastrophically shattered, tumbling down toward the realm of matter. Thus, our world consists of countless shards of the original vessels entrapping sparks of the Divine Light. Humanity’s great task involves helping God by freeing and reuniting the scattered Light, raising the sparks back to Divinity and restoring the broken world.

it takes a village to raise child …

it takes a world ? to raise our selves and our world ? toward G– ?

Start living on a higher vibration

Now we take it to the heights of creation

Perfection of divinity
Is everyone’s duty
Don’t waste your time
Living for the vanities

We are creatures of faith
Victims of destiny
Which we create

Now we living on a higher vibration
‘Cause we take it to the heights of creation

Ziggy Marley – Higher Vibration ..

Kwanzaa celebrates what its founder Maulana Karenga called the seven principles of Kwanzaa, or Nguzo Saba (originally Nguzu Saba—the seven principles of African Heritage), which Karenga said “is a communitarian African philosophy,” consisting of what Karenga called “the best of African thought and practice in constant exchange with the world.  The celebration had some traction years back, though currently not very popular here in the USA … a la 2% ( like Jazz? ) .. still, potent !

hmmm ..  Unity, Self-Determination, Collective Work and Responsibility, Cooperative Economics , Purpose, Creativity, Faith … Geez.. you’d think that woulda taken off !

Geez … you’d think this would take off ? Looks like it is ! (see Kwanzaa,  above )…    it’s said if you are not angry, you are not paying attention ..  careful though …  be sure to wick it,  shake it off ! Keep Shakin’ your Beauty !

There is alot more to say about all this, that’s likely what the next 500 years is for  .. so let’s see, be, do, .. and accentuate the positive .. don’t mess with Mr. In Between … peoplovpeacecopowerunity !

I gotcha Corey~

If your world is only as big as your last trip to the five and dime. Pick up some change whilst listening to WorldOneRadio and your mind will expand, your horizon line will extend far beyond the periferal vision bestowed upon those who live within your panorama. Keep growing and you will see with your own eyes, hear with your own ears and feel with all your heart…the evolution will be broadcast!! The soundscape is infinite and echos like a familar song in our soul~ step outside the capsule…take a walk on the wild side…take it to the limit…live…laugh…love~

…getchoself some and watch this thing take off~

Good Morning Good ! RosenBro!

and gotchaback ! keep generating that good juju that you do ! = ; ) ~


Good Morning Good ! Good Afternoon Good Evening ! All .. where are you ?

This month week on behlaf of worldoneradio + festival, Corey accepts an Honor awarded by Contra Costa County Arts Commission/ AC5 for “individual” work of nearly 20 years (but who’s counting?) as :

Founder/ Director of worldOneradio WCCUSD Public Radio  Radio 88.1 keCg 97.7, to educate and engage the community while promoting global awareness through music culture nature and technology… and .. the very popular worldOne festival in El Cerrito .. and … educator who provides who provides his students with practical experiences of diverse cultures.

2013 Co-Honorees include the much respected and ebullient Los Centzontles Mexican Arts Center and formidable imagineer Architect James Phillip Wright. And YES, we are already talking and planning collaborations catalyzed by this lovely AC5 trifecta.  NICE!  Photo below by Fletcher Oakes Photography

While nearly always galloping, wise ones in my life have advised me to pause deeply take this in. I shall do my best to pause and reflect.

Receiving is probably just common sense and practical good advice, as any Bay Area industry spotlights have almost summarily, to date, successfully circumnavigated our work, and otherwise shift rather quickly! LOL ?

That said, I appreciatively share this distinction and will shine this honor forward  with all who have supported my various related initiatives: My Beloved Wife-Collaborator-Healer Debra Sue Kelvin ( WP is absolutely defied BOTH of us, in uplaoading a picture here,arrgh) City of El Cerrito, WCCUSD, CCC ROP, and all the Artists, Sponsors, Recordists, Producers, Professional Mentors and Public Ed Teachers, Volunteers, Listeners who have shared their passions and creativity with our students and our community through keCg Public Radio, worldOneradio + festival.

What I have sought to offer over this span of time is a deep dream of a harmonized, healthy, beautiful, restored, co-creative world.

That dream is kindled in the deepest recesses of my mind, and finds its first ring of manifestation in the world at home, Heartquarters. Living with my Beloved who also manages her own solo Integrative Health Practice.  She does all that, holds up half my sky, and not only speaks “Corey”, she can read my handwriting back to me when I cannot, and is the finder of lost objects.

Given our passions and modest combined household incomes, we only get by with a LOTTA help from our friends, and collaboratorsmentioned above and the generosity of our landlords. My deep and sincere thanks dear landlords who have generously affordably-housed us in El Cerrito over a few decades, The Kawatas, and over the last several recent years, The Chen Family. Landlords all over the County, I trust you are listening!

Our friend responded to the news of this award with a wily wink …

I always enjoy myself at the (festival) and appreciate all that your intention behind it brings. I also enjoy the radio station regularly and have it programmed into my car choices. Enjoy. Let it in…..because now that you have been publically recognized… can never give up the fair…..sly those (City and County Officials) …..A.

May it be so! I would add that we managed, together as a County, Cities, Schools and Districts, to survive some very lean and even nearly mean economic seasons, to arrive to this day. I might say we did do artfully.  The art of living is seeing a way, a practical way, some resourceful, inspired and inspiring way where there is no way. And so, perhaps a further testimony to the value of seeing and processing information and experience artfully. And bringing and artful perspective to rational-in-the-word needs and problems. Respecting and reinventing traditions. Disabusing ourselves of what no longer works.  A higher path. A different way to interpret and present feelings and thoughts. A rounder expression of our glorious human soul-fullness, kultimutural heritage and hoped-for collective future.  Arts speak an added dimensional language of the heart, mind, and soul. Arts help shape healthier humans.

It is my hope that ALL civic and business enterprises continue to vigorously and generously support the nurturance of comprehensive whole-being education, enlightened business practice, active collaboration among the two, and the celebration of our world of musics, arts, dance, architecture, agriculture, ecology, sciences and life-long- learning. Gwan and Shake Your Beauty !

From the heart, thank you.  Don’t stop believing.  worldOnelove!   = :  ) ~

so why do we fzuk with IT … H E R, and confuse or abuse creation, ourselves, each other, so much ?

the strongest force in our human nature, is thought … so called bad, good, and everything in between ..

so .. we need proper education .. no, not factoried,institutionalized, blandished, partitioned, linear, analytical, rehash that passes for modern education …

we need to e d u c e .. drawing out the invisible to the visible … and connecting the embodied soul, whilst on the earthtop (desktop) to its source in deep inner-outer s p a c i o u s n e s s (ku)  ..  the imagination engine … through richly informative ex + insperiences  ..

some things need to be believed to be seen ..

the “old gods” are as real as anything .. echoed and created  … we are superorganic imagination engines, we are not gadgets .. we are not commodities, except in the eyes of crass commercialism ..

Law of Ma’at

God needs you in order to come into the world. Fulfilling God’s need is the highest act of love, and only through your love for God can you fulfill your love for others. Become the Love of God in the world for the protection of the world.
