D.I.A's Logo D.I.A (DIVERSE INTENSIFIED AUDIO) is the epic center of the Global Rock Revolution. D.I.A is DIA Records (label), Global Rock Showcase (events) and Fantra Zine (publication). Dubb Agents page. Building more gigs to be announced. Musically, Global Rock is the fusion of two or more genres to get a final sound. For example Alternative/Reggae/Hiphop, Ska/Punk/Funk/Rock, etc. Global Rock artists, for example, Bad Brains, Eek-A-Mouse, P.O.D (Payable On Death), Slightly Stoopid, Fishbone, Dubb Agents, Aggrolites. It is about Rhythms, Cultures, and Total Inclusion (for most parts). The Global Rock philosophy is -- there is no Race, Class, Age or Gender (which has nothing to do with sexuality). People are just people first. Racism and Classism suck. It is about Respect, Tolerance, and Loyalty for most parts also.

Social Networking Effects: Myspace (first) and Facebook have made the conventional music site severely obsolete especially for most indie entities. We watched traffic to D.I.A's website reduced drastically while Myspace evolved into a social network monster including setting benchmarks for the music biz in many areas and peaked about 2008. Facebook? Currently, FB is the #1 "Tower Of Babel." Fact! Regarding artist, brand and product development plus promotion, despite the popularity, FB is still nowhere close to Myspace in targeting people (fans and consumers) with a wide impact. Currently D.I.A relaxed all social networking and returned to the grind in the street. Continuing to maintain an organic indelible footprint for DIA-Inc.com is the main focus. Related social media pages are just supporting components. The trend currently is DIA-Inc.com activities are back up.

Street Ragz Summer Collection Black Cap AlternativeRegarding DIA-Inc.com upgrading to a cutting-edge site? Definitely thought of switching to a (sterile) Jamroom-type site but dude, we still love the grit of "good school" sites for a variety of reasons. Besides, one should not really give a pig a bath man... In the meantime -- check out a few D.I.A-related recordings at DIA Records (I) - Myspace.

The Global Rock Showcase is the original Punky Reggae Ska Dubb Party with Funky Metallic and Hiphop segments mixed in sometimes. This is the foundation concert brand of its kind. It doesn't matter if the Global Rock Showcase brand is imitated underground or overground from Ventura - Cali to Wilmington - NC.; actually -- it is quite flattering to see hedz exploit the concept. It is even more flattering when pillars like Billboard Magazine acknowledged dubbing Global Rock a "...crossbreed...;" June 30, 2005, CNET TV tagged Live Aid Concert "New Global Rock Concert"; and sweeeeet to see music publishing giant BMI bringing a "...Global Rock Scene..." to its Lollapalooza Stage August 3-5, 2006, in Chicago - IL, USA. D.I.A's Global Rock Showcase is the profound musical revolution forever on!! Music cannot go beyond "Global Rock" on this Third Stone From The Sun. Go tweet that to Barbara Walters and Brian Williams and tell them to file Global Rock in their musical lexicon!

Global Rock Showcases have infiltrated pro-venues small and big. From the Muse in Nashville - TN, the Viper Room, West Hollywood, California to Red Rocks Amphitheater, Red Rocks/Denver - Colorado, and Highline Ballroom - NYC (with bad bwoy Eek-A-Mouse, and HR & Dubb Agents. Bigups to Sister "Bam Bam" Nancy (class act), the original rudie toaster deejay from the ska-rocksteady-early reggae golden era -- Dennis Alcapone, RonKat Spearman (P-Funk Allstar), Weapons Of Mass Persuasion, Tinga Stewart, Jr. Demus, etc. And last but not least Todd "Stereocell".

To paint a vivid picture of the colorful genre of Global Rock, here are some of our favorite Global Rock crews: Bob Marley, Paul Simon, Bad Brains, Fuego, 24-7 Spies, Sublime, Fishbone, Ronkat Spearman, Thievery Corporation, Dennis Alcapone, Skatalites, P.O.D., Korn, Beastie Boys, Run DMC, Body Count, Super Cat, Roguish Armament, Matisyahu, King D'Jango, Koolie Ranks, Shabba Ranks, NOFX, Slightly Stoopid, Expendables, Dubb Agents, DumpstaPhunk, Aggrolites and all Silverback crews, No Doubt, Jack Ruby, Jr. etc. The list goes on.


Global Rock Radio (GRR) 'The Muzikal UPRISING.'  Click for Global Rock Radio Youtube outtake This Is Global Rock Radio - GRR​owlingz. We are building to go to a prime mainstream radio dial and across the World Wide Web. The main agenda is to play recordings from punk, reggae, alt. hiphop, ska and alternative/underground sounds from bands/artists such as artists on the WCDB 90.9. FM Albany - NY, DJ Sir Walford Productions​ segment.

Although sporadic or occasional at the moment Global Rock Radio is GRRowling again!! But first -- the very first Global Rock Radio 2-part program was produced for KPFZ - 104.5 FM (then) in Lucerne -- California June 5, 2002, at then Ed Robinson's Tiftam -- yes Ed Robinson's Tiftam Recording Studio in 2001. Universal! A couple of years after the KPFZ GRR series, Global Rock Radio GRRowled via the internet. Shows were 1/2 hour segments featuring an artful blend of Ska, Punk, Blues, Reggae, Funk, Hiphop and Metal, etc., via Myspace. It was Gong's Punky Reggae Party evolving into the Punky Reggae Ska Dub Party with Metal and Hiphop mixed in at times. Those who have listened know the flavor. And big thanks to all radio jocks and artists who contributed drops to the streaming Global Rock Radio.

We ain't gonna give the ultimate plan away yet. But a component of the plan is to play music conventional and even college radio is not playing. So please spread the word. We need at least 20,000 likes/friends to make an impact. That would be awesome. Let us give radio an adrenaline boost with some gritty organic programming.

Now fast forward to Saturday, August 29, 2015, when DJ Sir Walford of WCDB 90.9 FM, Albany NY curated about a 60-minute segment of Global Rock Radio inside his show. Mouse DJ Sir Walford/WDCB playlist image to left for a bigger playlist image. More Global Rock Radio in the works. So stay tuned while we rewind Global Rock Radio and come again. It is happening!

The raw gritty segments featured punk, reggae, hiphop, etc., with video wraparounds and banter by a different celeb for each episode. About fifty 30 minutes shows were produced.

Galaxy 5 [G5] & Satcom C3 [F3] the show covered the USA, Canada, parts of Caribbean and the far reaches of Space.


HR of Bad Brains audiovisual track "ROW". Kind of a ska punk reggae ting. Global Rock!.

JOHNNY NASH "HOLD ME TIGHT". Rocksteady rules! Johnny Nash was blessed three times over. Good Gosh! Yes I'm a womanizer. Global Rock!.

LIGHTNIN' HOPKINS "MOJO HAND". Lyrics include "Cold Ground Was My Bed Last Night, Rock Was My Pillow Too." Sounds familiar? Listen. .

GONG -- "TALKING BLUES". "Cold Ground Was My Bed Last Night And Rock Was My Pillow Too." The harmonica added a wailing soulful blues vibe to this version. Al Anderson also added the blues and rock elements to Gong's sound. Al certainly borrowed a few riffs...

GONG's Star shines bright on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame like Sirius.
