For the past 20+ years, I have had the privilege and honor of hosting the Dharma Wheel here at KBOO. I hope It has been a musical soundtrack of our times, sharing music that rings with political and spiritual truth.
It is an amazing and perhaps synchronistic coincidence that I chose to end the show and then Obama wins the election. The timing couldnt be more perfect. So to all of you who have supported me over the years: listeners who have now become friends, listeners who contributed during pledge drives, businesses like Precision Glass and Dave who were underwriters for a long time, the amazing listeners who supported me emotionally, spiritually and financially when I was sick a few years ago and finally, all the amazing singers/songwriters and musicians who have appeared live on the show--thank you for sharing in what I tried to create each week thru the air waves.
I am ending the Dharma Wheel but not leaving KBOO. I may show up with some music specials during pledge drives and will continue doing interviews on public affairs shows from time to time. The reason is pretty simple in the long run--sometimes you have to let go of something in order for something new to emerge. One door closes and another opens.
