So, in 1990, not only was I a Dj at WKCR (on the Middle Passage show, of all things), but I also lived with Susie Ibarra (jazz drummer) on Bank Street. She was taking lessons from Buster Smith, then a drummer for the Arkestra. Susie said she was going to meet Buster for dinner, and asked if I wanted to come along. I said sure. I met Susie and Buster at some Lower E. Side restaurant, and Buster warned me about "Ra" (as he called him). Buster said, "Ra's gonna say he's from Jupiter ... but we all know he's from Alabama."

Yay Sun Ra!!!!

(ps ... tell the Reverend Brown that Enrique says "hello").
