Universal Harmony

Universal Harmony with Dr Snikkers

As wholesome as a slice of freshly toasted sourdough, as empowering as winning an award at a school assembly, and infused with the same amount of positive vibes and aligned chakras as a Titirangi yoga class… dr.Snikkers brings you... Universal Harmony.
 
Modelled off the most epic of group hugs, the penguin huddle, Universal Harmony is a journey into the deep space between all of us and aims to connect each listener in a sort of audio penguin-like huddle through conscious music that spans both time and genre.  

Tuesday nights, from 10 'til midnight, are reserved for the odyssey that is... Universal Harmony.

Perhaps.

Most people are good and so most people assume the people in power are good. But, sometimes, they're controlled by money and by greed, by banks and political donations. Awareness starts with knowing what you're dealing with and so this segment asks: shouldn't politicians be dressed like Daytona drivers?

Feature: A Different Take On The World
Where we highlight a different way of thinking in order to better understand our experience of the world...

This week we visit Parral, Chile with a poem by Pablo Neruda called Poema 20. Born July 1904, Pablo Neruda was the pen name and, later, legal name of the Chilean poet-diplomat and politician Ricardo Eliecer Neftali Reyes Bosoalto. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. Translated as Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Dispair , the poem expresses the pain of losing a lover. The bittersweet sentiment recalls their passionate relationship and recognises that "love is so short, forgetting is so long."
