Lou Reed and John Cale both have March birthdays, so it seems appropriate that I have a show dedicated to the Velvet Underground.  We’re gonna play songs by VU, solo works by Lou and John, some covers, and some other goodies.  Join DJ Barnabas on KBFG 107.3 FM Seattle / streaming at www.fulcrumcc.org.  Wednesday at 7pm and (repeat) Saturday 11am.

March is a great month for birthdays: Albert Einstein, Stefan Banach, myself, DJ Barnabas all have March birthdays.  I read about the fascinating  Olga Ladyzhenskaya.   Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Diana Ross, Spike Lee, and Mr. Rogers – all Pisces.
