CBS Radio Mystery Theater was a radio program started in 1975 by broadcaster Hiram Brown as an attempt to bring back quality 'old time radio' in the age of TV sitcoms and bad Hollywood movies. I remember listening to it before falling asleep as a kid. It had a huge impact on the development of my imagination and creativity and I'll never forget it. The series went off the air in 1982 after producing 1399 episodes.
I was so happy when I found some episodes archived on Internet Archive (http://www.archive.org). This episode is entitled 'Alexander Part 5: The Legend Begins' and was part of a week long series dramatizing the life of Alexander The Great.

In ancient times music and art were not created for pure entertainment value. Music and art were created to fulfill specific spiritual, religious, and ritualistic needs.
If one were to follow Plato's sacred creed that we should define our terms before engaging in meaningful debate, then one may recognize the worthiness of going as far back in time as possible to look for answers to today's questions.
Today, humanity has gotten no more closer to the meanings of 'truth' and 'beauty' as it had in 400 B.C.
Musical notation from Atlantis, Lemuria, and Ancient Egypt has not survived the ages. This week's podcast focuses on the visionary 20th and 21st century musicians who attempt to show their listeners what music may have sounded like when it had a higher purpose.
Thanks for listening! Stay tuned for next week's surprising episode!

Welcome to my first podcast! I made this episode to celebrate and commemorate the life of Bryn Jones, aka Muslimgauze, who passed away January 14 1999.
There is much controversy surrounding the politics of Muslimgauze and I encourage everyone who connects with his music to do a little searching and come to your own conclusions. Muslimgauze's overwhelming subject matter was the struggle for freedom and human rights. In my opinion he made extreme public statements in order to raise interest and concern about a problem that has only gotten worse since his death. Bryn Jones was a visionary musician and thinker and his work resonates deeply with me.
I encourage everyone who hears this music and is affected by it to go out and observe his legacy by purchasing some of his music, either at your local record store or through digital music stores like iTunes and emusic.
Thanks for listening, and stay tuned for next weeks surprising episode!
