Original Air Date - 2 June 2011

I did not intend to do a Gil Scott-Heron tribute today.

Not that he doesn't deserve it, but I had decided that there were going to be more than enough tribute shows out there (in which I was correct) doing a much better job than I could of celebrating the legend that is Gil Scott-Heron (like this one from http://www.mixcloud.com/Blackclassical - http://www.mixcloud.com/Blackclassical/rip-gill-scott-heron).

However, as the weekend went by and I went about my life here in Harlem, I began to notice something--a distinct lack of reverence for Gil and/or celebration of his life. Even today's funeral procession was small compared to those for others who have done much less for this community. (More of my thoughts on this here: http://bit.ly/kB3jVU).

Thus, I present you with today’s episode, as much an offering of atonement for Harlem’s forgetfulness as it is a tribute to the late Poet Laureate of America’s urban ghettos.

Alright! Amen! Merci Beaucoup! Upon your, to quote a wiser, more Classical and of course more Blacker than I, (judging [not] from your pic [apologies if you are not of a shade darker than cracker-ass white, as I indeed am]), "AWESOME" mix provided in honor of this far-underrated, obscenely-profound and seriously-breakin-continuously-social-muthafukin ground still-today, true individual! Mr. Invader of Space, sir, and Mr. Classical Black, sir and you as well, Mothafuckin sir, I salute these and all others' tributes, homages and broadcasting these artists' beautiful contributions to society, we're doin better and better but far from perfect social ethic/living standards...all about progressive movements tho! Bless you and all!
