NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY MIX, FOX FM, 1990


These are audio excerpts from my first proper radio gig, 25 years ago today. From 1990 to '94, I sequenced the live 8-hour New Years' Eve party sessions on Fox FM in Oxford, largely inspired by Les Adams and James Hamilton's legendary mixes on Capital Radio. This was the first. It doesn't claim to be particularly revolutionary as it was very early days, but has a lot of nostalgic value.

BACK TO '95 - ONE LAST TIME


BACK TO '95 - ONE LAST TIME

Just before 2015 is out, here's one last trip back 20 years to the wonderful year of 1995. First off is Westwood's Radio 1 Rap Show of exactly 20 years ago today, showcasing all the hot joints of that year. Next up, Funkmaster Flex doing the same in the mix on Hot 97. Lastly, a revisit to my radio mix of a few weeks ago, throwing down some of my favourite cuts of '95.

Miss those days!

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 74: JOHAN OLDENKAMP/ THE TRUE ORIGINS OF CHRISTMAS




A timely edition, as Dutch researcher and radio and TV host Johan Oldenkamp guests to discuss the myths, symbology and spiritual science behind the festival we know today as Christmas.

Johan reveals how the event represents a mixed bag of influences from European traditions, primarily anchored in the Winter Solstice. This was a time of worship for the 'rebirth' of the Sun, and led to the religious figures of Mithra, Horus, and most recently, Jesus, with the Sun/ Son of God having a double-meaning. The Roman Catholic church brought in Christianity to replace the Pagan traditions, keeping the dates the same to ease the transition. 'Christmas' also tied in with the popular Roman festival of Saturnalia. 

Johan points out that 'Christmas' literally means the sacrifice of Christ Consciousness, and has come to be a subversion of its original sun-worshipping status, to instead bring in the dark influences of Saturn. This reversal of meanings can be seen in the figure of Father Christmas/ Santa (Satan) Claus - originally a representation of the Sun, but more recently flipped to symbolise aspects of Saturn.

We conclude by discussing the internal, alchemical process of attaining higher consciousness, and its own connections to the Christmas story, and how people can still enjoy the festivities of the season without being fooled into embracing the dark symbolism involved.

MARK DEVLIN GUESTS ON CRYSTAL KIDS TV WITH NATALIE-MARIE HART


Here's the interview I did for the Crystal Kids TV show on the Conscious Consumer Network. As the name suggests, the show is aimed at young teenagers, so I attempted to get across information about the true nature of the entertainment industry in an appropriate way for this audience. Topics ranged from 'elite' initiation rituals, to mind-controlled celebs.

VIDEO: MARK DEVLIN GUESTS ON NEAL VEGLIO'S CHAOS & THEORY PODCAST


Apparently, many among the mainstream listenership of this podcast, thought I was 'nuts' and merely scoffed laughingly at what I had to say because it didn't fit the BBC/ Wikipedia version of what's going on in the world. 

Wouldn't it be great if, when hearing challenging information for the first time, rather than writing off the speaker as mad simply because they don't like the sound of it, people would at least do a small modicum of independent research on their own to see whether the information really does have any validity or not - particularly when that information has grave repercussions for the future of these very people and their children if it turns out to be true?

RIP critical, independent thought. A social crime in 2015. Whatever would the guys at work say?!!

MARK DEVLIN ON PATEO TV: THE WEAPONIZATION OF CONSENT, AND 'WAKING UP.'


This is an audio extract from my two-hour appearance on Johan Oldenkamp's Wholly Science show in Pateo TV the other week, where I get into the subject areas of mass consent and how it's weaponized against us, and the process of waking up to a grudging acceptance of truth brought about by recent and current events.

MARK DEVLIN GUESTS ON NEAL VEGLIO'S CHAOS & THEORY PODCAST

I feel this was a pretty decent chat for the podcast of writer and journalist Neal Veglio, who I know from way back when we both worked at Oxygen FM. This cast is aimed at a mainstream audience, and I attempted to break down the cold, harsh truth about this reality - particularly in light of current events - with this kind of listenership in kind. It's no-holds-barred and from the heart.
