It’s the first of April and that can mean only one thing…
8 8 OneLove FM El Cerritmo 97.7 San Pablo, KECG. Kindling Evolving Culture Grooves. worldOnelove soul sound unity. Or, you know, something like that. This is actually Radio EdSoft Films. Episode 23.17 – worldFoolin’ 12th EDition. You can tell things are a little bit different. But that’s okay. This is how I started in radio, after all. All those years ago, in the basement of the old El Cerrito High School, nervously playing records like only the 17 year old me could.
I got a call a couple weeks ago from dj worldOnelove themself, and they kind of made me wonder how much longer their era will last. There’s a chance that this could be the last worldFoolin’ episode to broadcast over the airwaves, if it even makes it that far. Hence, the indulgent outro. It’s a little scary to think about. Hopefully the pandemic will not be the end for worldOne @ KECG.
There’s always mixcloud, I suppose. I hope you enjoy this.
Hi this is Ed from Radio EdSoft Films, you night owls may have heard my shows late in the evening. If you enjoyed those or any other shows on kecg then please take a moment to hear a bit about this station.
keCg has been broadcasting to the inner bay rim since 1978, bringing unique music and sounds of different cultures from the world for over 30 years.
As technology advances and becomes more personalized, allowing individuals to carry computers in their pockets with quick access to information and entertainment, we’ve become dependant on that technology to tell us where to go, what we want, what we like. It may help streamline our lives, but where is the spontaneity, the discovery when you hear something unexpected and wonderful. Something you wouldn’t have looked for because you didn’t know about it, and because the algorithm thought you wouldn’t like it.
To put it another way, these days FM radio can seem a little bit old.
But should things that are old be forgotten?
I don’t think that it should.
Listeners may not realize but our shows are curated and arranged by real people. There is time and care put into the playlists you hear and it’s our pleasure to tell you a story, take you on a journey, or sow seeds of inspiration in your hearts and minds. But such personally curated music will continue to struggle to stay on air without the help and support of our listeners.
keCg has been a big part of my life and opened my mind and ears to a world of music.

This is an updated version of the previous show of the same name. This is the one I made specifically to play around Christmas on KECG. Just added some holy-jolly songs and took out some of the songs less in the spirit of things.
