Sun Ra Arrival Day broadcast

This is two hour Sun Ra Arrival Day broadcast on May 22 to celebrate the 109th anniversary of his arrival from planet Saturn (1914–2023), highlighting his ultra-creative musical journey centred on space travel as a form of Black liberation. This mix has attempted to chronologically put together important sonic evolution moments showcasing the effect of the scenes he artistically got immersed into, together with his Arkestra.
On his way from his landing place, Birmingham/ Alabama, through to Chicago, New York and Philadelphia, always paying tribute to all his heroes and teachers and creating the movement of afro-futurism.
