This will be ...special.
To Hurting People
Since we are struggling with pain, even at this moment, we have first hand knowledge of what it is like to experience the silence of God. Sometimes the immense loneliness of pain-whether physical, mental or emotional-is completely overwhelming!
As you listen to us spin, let the music wash over your brokenness as great healing waves of God’s merciful love until you hear the music once again.
From our hearts to yours,
D.J. Body Beautiful...and our new special friend DJ Mishegoss
Alan Zweig made three films about being a negative lonely record collector. They were called "Vinyl", "I Curmudgeon" and "Lovable". His latest film "A Hard Name" was his first documentary that wasn't about him and the consensus seems to be that it was his best film yet. He also acted in a number of films including the classic "Ballad of Don Quinn". This evening gives Alan the chance not to concentrate on his usual dance floor fillin’ masterpieces. No. FEELINGS affords him the opportunity to visit the fringes of his remaining collection. He will most certainly play "Down to Visit" by Len Fairchuck, a song about that town in Alberta that made a landing pad for aliens. And oh so much more. Having experienced Alan’s gifts firs thand, we here at FEELINGS are honoured to have such a man that can change the vibe of a room through his insightful choices.
