Screen Shot 2014-05-24 at 8.44.44 PM

On this episode of the podcast show, 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.
