Todays show falls on another celebratory date. Beltane, an ancient pagan day of importance, with festivities and rituals ranging from feasting to fires, the blessing of the crops, recently sowed and the celebration of the sun’s light getting stronger. DJ Mediafrenzy discusses some of the ancient rites and practices and plays songs related to seasons, flowers and fire.
It’s also May Day. In London, over the past few years May Day has meant some kind of bicycle related event. This year, EVAC organized a DIY bike kitchen tune up day. The event is mentioned a few local bicycle songs are played.
May Day is significant because of the struggles and successes of the Workers’ Rights Movement, including establishing a 8 hour work day. DJ Mediafrenzy delves into the history of the movement and the victories, while playing some fantastic labour related tunes and protest anthems.
