While I'm sure Synergy was off-the-chain as usual, I spent last Saturday on the road, driving to South Carolina, just across the Savannah River from the Godfather of Soul's hometown. As is the norm for my recent road trips, the XM radio came along for the trip, and even though I couldn't find an internet connection, a cable box, or a decent cell signal anywhere ("Can you hear me now? No...") I did get to take in a buncha the wonderful content on the system. When by myself, I'd usually listen to The Flow, Raw, The Rhyme, or The City, but since Mommy was along for the trip, I had to respect her low tolerance for rap. I still managed to find many goodies-- check Soul Street (shout to Bobby Bennett), The Groove, or Chrome.



As for our own XM thing, at midnight on Friday and Saturday, we ran the 12th Anniversary jont, featuring T-Dawg and DJ Ragz. T-Dawg did an 80's set, with Ragz steppin to the 90's like Yo-Yo. And CTRL-V...

XM love aside, spending 20 hours in a car with Ma Dukes is a special kinda torture, so we're defnitely gonna file that experience along with the other painful September '03 episodes, and then we're putting the pain in a little box, and tossing it in the Potomac. The only horoscope I read all year, the wonderful "if today is your birthday" jont, says that I "follow the golden rule in October" and end up in a good place. I'd normally pay it very little mind, but the same piece said I'd be obsessing over a summertime relationship; that was done ad nauseum-- y'all know, y'all were there (no mention that the relationship would be over when the obsessing started-- the stars apparently have a wicked sense of humor). Then, back in April, the ex's birthday 'scope promised her an "outstanding and memorable" July and August; during those two months, she found a day job, made big moves on her side hustle, and found my replacement. Hardly a scientific analysis, but I'm just saying that's a little too much accuracy for it all to be just a fluke (right?); but if it is, I'll know by All Saints' Day.



Wrapping up the last of this month's business, I asked someone-- anyone-- to find a hip-hop artist that referenced the late Johnny Cash in a song, in order to prove to Contributing Producer PMD that he had some relevance to the hip-hop world. Alert reader and Remote Soul Controller DJ Mister Elite writes in that no less of a hip-hop icon than Diggin' In The Crates member Diamond D threw in a line about Johnny Cash on one of the tracks on the classic "Stunts, Blunts, and Hip-Hop" album. So there, P.



Happy October.
