On the road, off the grid!

Magnetofunky: Walkabout is a laid back (and often explicit - you bet your ass) personal journal of extremely eclectic music and progressive politics, with a focus on mobile energy independence and creative West Coast wanderlust.

This new show departs from the previous podzine in that I'm preparing to leave the safe confines of a brick and mortar SRO to discover California outside of Los Angeles and San Francisco, attempting to expand my definition of personal freedom on a more or less permanent rent-free bike tour up and down the West Coast...

The mobile power plant I created is a working 100W model Battery Operated Self-Charging System, a modification of a device patented by Carlos F. Benitez 100 years ago. A 1000W system is also possible...

Center Stage accepts submissions of almost any genre from great bands and artists the world over, whether big name or indie, as long as I like the beat and flow.
