Flying Saucers by Tena Stelin – Lyrics transcribed for the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives:

Anunnaki, Anu-Anunnaki
Anunnaki, El Kuluwm

Flying Saucers
Them a chat bout on-ya
Flying Saucers
Up in the Sky near and far
It’s coming like Star Wars…Watch it!

Please tell me: what is the meaning?
The meaning of these sightings?
So many people claim to see the same thing
I guess it must mean something

Talking about Extra Terrestrials!
Ask yourself: is it real or is it impossible? Watch out!

In the Book of Ezekiel
It’s like he describes a Crystal Ship

I’ve got to wonder if he was for real?
Was he just a raving lunatic? Hallelu-Jah!

Enoch walked with God
And he was found not

Elijah was taken up into a Chariot
A Chariot of Fire!

Inna Ancient Mesopotamia
They talked about the Anunnaki
They said they came from beyond the Sky
Oh tell me! Was they telling a lie?

El Kuluwm means the Source
El Kuluwm the highest course
All and Iley and Allah is the Same
So the Rastaman tell me no feel no way

<Ancient Aliens Roll Call; 10 sec.>

  •  Anu – Supreme Sky-God of the Sumerians. The God of Heaven, Lord of Constellations , King of gods, spirits and demons. He who  dwelt in the highest heavenly regions
Unknown
Like His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I: Anu – Lord of Lords holding his Holy Chalice. This album is in the All Time Top Ten of the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives.

<Enoch takes a ride to Heaven; 35 sec.>

Enoch – Noah’s great-Grandad. “Beam me up, Yahweh!”
  • Extra Terrrestraisls – Sentient beings from planets, solar systems or galaxies outside Earth
aliencropcircle
“We beat you humans to Interstellar Space Travel because we legalized the Seven Leaf”

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ive: Jah-gust 9, 2014 Post Script, Vinyl is Vital: 3 hours of 45 REVOLUTIONS Per Minute

<Smile Jamaica’s version of Stairway to Heaven; 8 sec.>

Stairway to Heaven: From my hands to Jah’s ears – Vinyl is Vital: 7 Inch Boomshots on Smile Jamaica

Greetings,

<Smile Jamaica Jah-gust 9, 2014 intro: Jamaican Jukebox of 7″ 45s; 8 sec.>

If you listen at all to Smile Jamaica you might notice a few “trends”

  1. Music never stops. Even when I chatter away
  2. I am way too into 4:20, herbtunes, Seven Leaf
  3. I’m getting to the point of being way into all things Extra Terrestrial
  4. I don’t play much dancehall. I play contemporary dub and modern roots
  5. I worship at the Black Wax Temple.
1950s_Wurlitzer_juke_box
Chicks dig the 7 Inch

I don’t do Digital. I am a 2/3 CD 1/3 Vinyl selector/deejay/programmer on Smile Jamaica.

<lo-fi! no computa for I ‘n’ I; 5 sec.>

Christians got Ten. Muslims have Five. I only need Three.

Vinyl Commandments of Smile Jamaica

  • Commandment I – Thou Shalt Lead off each Ark-Ive Edition with a Vinyl Selection
  • Commandment II – Thou Shalt Play one Extra Loooong 12″ or 10″ piece of vinyl each half hour. Let the riddim stretch out to defy gravity. Sink down in the groove
  • Commandment III – Thou Shalt play a Vinyl is Vital (rhymes with Ital) set midway thru the 3 hour Ark-Ive

Juggle mi a juggle

Individual tracks from LPs (Long Players) or Extended Mix Vinyl on either 12″ or 10″ sizes. Just have not made room lately for the 7″ variety.

I had a listener Tweet me that I should show some love for the 45 RPM – 7″ vinyl

<Juggling Wax: 7″ Jamaican Jukebox. 38 sec.>

4752643-961029-attractive-little-girl-holding-vinyl-record
Better for you than Barbie, dawta!

So I did a quick tour of the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives and grabbed 2 crocus bags full of vinyl. Seven inch stylee!: 16 sec.

2  crocus bags of Smile Jamaica’s secret stash of Black Wax: 7 inch 45s for juggling! That is not an oven mitt but my Grandfather’s vinyl dust cloth from when he sold records in his Montana hardware store

Flingin’ vinyl at 45 REVOLUTIONS PER MINUTE; 12 sec.

The Real Revolutionary

The Power of Vinyl: Heavy Roots crapped out KRCL’s electrical system with a power outage. No mp3 has that shower of power

newgarden
This 7″ 45 spun with such fury it caused a power outage at KRCL during Smile Jamaica! Digital mp3s obviously not allowed in Jah’s garden!

Here is how these 7″ Black Wax editions differ from the usual Smile Jamaica Ark-Ive Show

  1. Jukebox and singles to be played in the dance by Jamaican dancehall selectors were expected to be short and snappy.

An average Smile Jamaica, 3 hours, plays between 30-35 tunes. It jumps to well over 40+ on 7″ only shows

<Why 7″s tend to be shorter in duration; 27 sec.>

2. You need a center adapter for the US and JA singles for the station Turntables

41XbggoSEDL._SY300_
7 inch adapter: US and JA singles have wide mouth centers. UK 7″s do not

<Cratedigging: US/JA 7″s vs. UK 7″s;  64 sec.>

3. The rarest of the rare out of the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives. Very few artists had the career for a full length album. But hundreds of great artists put forth one hit wonders on unique and boutique labels. The obscurity for sure-ty that enhances listening to a heavy cratedigger’s perspective on the Radio.

<One hit wonder; 37 sec.>

blooddonza
The obscure one shot boomshot. The true rarities featured out of the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives. No LP, No CD, No iTunes

Here is what I featured from the big stack of Black Wax:

  • Dub Album of the Week: Front Line Dub (Virgin); compilation from the Virgin Front Line Dub LPs. So the music never has to stop
  • Secret Shame: Rasta Jamaicans with a “sweet tooth” for Kentucky Fried Chicken

<Lee Perry: Two buckets of chicken, keeps the drum kickin'; 7 sec.>

<That’s not very Ital, KFC! 87 sec..>

Two down, 48 to go!

Summer of Roots continues into its 3rd month: Jah-gust on Smile Jamaica

<August? No, Jah-gust!; 16 sec.>

Here is what I featured on this week’s edition of Smile Jamaica: Aug. 2, 2014

I tell you the story about how Reggae and the Bible and the Hairy Eyeball all mashed up at my sister Stacey’s wedding 20 years ago.

bozrah
Isaiah 63:1. Verse I turned to at random from Gideon Bible at my sister’s wedding. Reggae lyrics synchronicity: “Who is this man from Bozrah with his garments dipped in blood?” Eerie

<Bozrah and the Hairy Eyeball: Wedding Bell Blues; 2 min 38 sec>

I love the TV show Ancient Aliens. When I retired from doing political interviews on Radioactive  KRCL (2003-2012), I ditched the hopeless of change and embraced my Ancient Alien heritage. Modern Aliens, the Greys? Meh…
