"Without music, life would be a mistake."  - Friedrich Nietzsche

"None but ourselves can free our minds."  - Bob Marley

"Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible."  - Frank Zappa

"Love the 'fly by the seat of your pants' feel of the show.  No f'ing 'playlist'.  Just play what feels right."  - Dirty Roots listener Doug from Detroit

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes 'Awww!'"  - Jack Kerouac

Happy birthday last week to "Our Patron Saint", Joe Strummer.  RIP
