Record: BB3287, Article: Interview with Sun Ra / interviewed by Dennis Irving. When & Where: Los Angeles : Pacifica Radio Archive, 1968. Description: Poet, mythical scientist and leader of Solar Arkestra discusses his mystical view of the world. He begins by defining his style of music within the concept of infinity, his role as a musical "coordinator," and the importance of music for all people. Blacks have been cast as "evil" in the Western world, which has lead to their decline in self value in American society. Music, he suggests, can counter this history. Sun Ra then provides his view of the Bible. He concludes with his view of leadership and the two orders of beings who inhabit the earth.

Dennis Irving, interviewer.
