Losing Gil Scott-Heron is sad in that we will not see any new work from him, but what he has left us is such an incredibly rich seam of poetic and musical history, a fount of inspiration from which we can sup for many many years to come. Thank you Gil for many lessons learned.
The next Celestial Navigation is on June 3 - birthday of the wonderful Curtis Mayfield, so we will have the pleasure of broadcasting for the first time a 30-minute interview with Curtis made for A Love Supreme Broadcasts in Amsterdam. We will also bring you interviews with Gil Scott-Heron made for the same radio show in Amsterdam. These interviews have never been heard on UK radio before, so tune in on Friday at 4!
NE1fm, 102.5fm in Newcastle/Gateshead, online at www.ne1fm.net or later on as a podcast on Podomatic
