Science Fiction, Science Fact, and celebration of the birthdays of Utah and Pete
and the WJFF May 7th Folk Celebration Tonight

Under the Theme music for Star Wars

"There is the whole genre of "filk" music, which combines science fiction and folk.
What is Filk:
A song specifically written with a science fiction theme, and songs about real happenings in space songs to honor astronauts and missions, or the space program also count.

What is Not Filk: Drug songs are NOT filk songs. The Moody Blues' Floating, the Byrds' Eight Miles High, and Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit are full of space or fantasy references, but these are references for people who need to take drugs to experience spaceflight or flights of fancy. The rest of us read science fiction.

Thanks to all well wishers with my curret battle withneurotoxic poisoning and chemical sensitivities and welcome to new listeners on the web.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
