It's a trip back in time to those days in your daddy's pickup truck, with the George Jones, and Waylon Jennings 8-tracks playing; or to the times in your grandmother's kitchen, drinking an RC, eating too many Smarties, Mary Janes, or Tootsie Rolls, with Eddy Arnold or Kitty Wells in the background. Perhaps it's the Hank Jr. or Alabama song that's part of the soundtrack for that special vacation, first baseball game, first car, or first love. Whether the year was 1993, 1973, or 1953; the memories return with Ultimate Twang. The reminiscent sounds of days past from the voices and pickers you loved, along with a few you might have forgotten about. Simply sit back and enjoy, as the gentle breezes of yesterday carry those long-lost sounds and events back to the forefront of your memories.

All aboard for two hours of African-rooted music and news from around the world, people!
This is a show where we track the footprints left by African people and their descendants on the music they touched -- everywhere they went, from one end of the world to the other. This is a space for dusting off old relics and test-flying the hottest new cuts from the most soulful, talented and masterful working musicians of today and yesteryear. From traditional African music to modern African, Caribbean, afro-latin, New Orleans, blues, jazz, soul, funk, rhythm & blues, rock & roll, reggae, folk, standards, singer-songwriter, classic country, political hip hop, boogie, gospel, fusion, americana, discarded pop, music from every corner of this Earth, and more (think Sun Ra!), it's all here.
And being that my DJ handle and the name of my show are nods to Jimi Hendrix and Parliament-Funkadelic, you'll be sure to hear regular contributions from those all-time heroes and their many associates. So from the planet-forging liquid magma that seemed to drip from Jimi's strings to the extra-terrestrial ecstatic dance spasm plasma that the Pfunk Army got all over us, we're all about spanning the spectrum of what the galaxy has to offer us around here.
So if you have a hunger for some high-intensity cultural exposure in a free-form sonic format, and you don't mind picking up a few profound lessons about human history along the way, then there's nothing to it but to clamber aboard, mates! Do ensure that your seat tray tables are in the upright *and locked* position, and that your lap belts are found low & tight across your waist. Then let's find out, together, where the good ship can take us next.

Listening to music with friends. A weekly mix-tape of songs often neglected but "not to be missed" as recommended by guests who take time to "riff" about their love of music. -While this mission statement is still true in essence, as of April 2015 the show has evolved into THE forum for all things Carolina Rock 'n' Roll, with emphasis on regional garage rock bands from the 1960s. The show has taken on a number of close friends, supporters and regular contributors such as noted NC record collector and curator Ken Friedman of the great Tobacco-A-Go-Go compilations, Asheville historian and vinyl archivist Rick Russell who has become a permanent guest and co-host with his "box of tricks" giving us the welcome opportunity to play straight to the airwaves from his amazing collection of rare original 45 records. Daniel Coston, who has written the book on NC '60s rock is a willing collaborator and partner in crime. The list goes on... including dozens of original artists who have made appearances, over the phone AND in person. The standing invitation is open... if you like what you hear and have song/artist requests/suggestions or would like to appear on the show, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH with your host: vancepollock at hotmail dot com. Stay Tuned!

CLOSER TO THE EDGE is a "Prog Variety Show" playing the finest classic and modern Progressive music from around the world! Progressive Rock (or simply Prog) evolved in the late 60's/early 70's from Psychedelic music to elevate rock to new levels of artistry. Prog bands, then and now, push rock's technical and compositional boundaries by going beyond the standard rock or popular verse-chorus song based structures. Also, the arrangements often incorporate elements drawn from classical, jazz and world music. Long, multi-dimensional pieces are more common while songs with lyrics are sometimes conceptual, abstract, or based in fantasy. Musically, unusual time signatures are frequent as is orchestration and many 'movements' within one song. Prog bands sometimes use "concept albums" to tell an epic story or tackle a grand overarching theme. Sub-genres include Prog Folk, Progressive Metal, Jazz/Rock Fusion, Crossover Prog, Symphonic Rock, Psychedelic/Space Rock, International Prog and more. Classic bands include Pink Floyd, Yes, King Crimson, Renaissance, ELP, Jethro Tull, The Moody Blues, Genesis, Rush, etc and modern bands include Porcupine Tree, Transatlantic, Anathema, Tool, Dream Theater, Marillion, Opeth, Riverside, Spock's Beard, Steven Wilson, etc. Great resources for Prog fans are PROG MAGAZINE and www.progarchives.com
