The ‘Irascible’ Ludwig Van Beethoven

This is Robert Lloyd’s first show with The White Network. He starts out with a bang and the life story of maybe the greatest composer in the history of music. The first few minutes Robert introduces himself and gives us some perspective on who he is and where he has come from musically and then works into the life of Beethoven.

Some of the highlights from the show are:

*The prodigy and his promotion by his father.

*Early family tragedies and losing his parents early in life.

*His personal relationships (or lack thereof) and failure in romance.

*Becoming the first ‘rock star’ in history.

*His writing of politically oriented music.

*The three phases of Beethoven’s musical life and his greatest compositions.

Robert plays parts (snips) of several of Beethoven’s greatest musical numbers and we are treated to the “Moonlight Sonata” in all its glory.

The podcast will be broadcast and available for download on Saturday at 6PM

  1. My apologies for the delay in getting this on-air. I had misnamed the file during the initial setup. It shouldn’t happen again.

    I think it is very fine to have a program that is not primarily about joos, race, decay, the need for awakening, and so on. As I was saying about the White Student Unions that the students need, one of the things to do is to enjoy. By all means, mention race, joos, etc., if you need to Lloyd, but enjoyment is a nice addition to the lineup. We can’t always be studying! :)

  3. Congratulations on a very professional first show, Robert. I was still enjoying it on the 4th hearing!

    Tan, I usually download the programs here through the Itunes feed. The new shows such as this one are not showing up on the feed. Carolyn’s shows are though.

    The last Hour by the Window wasn’t in the feed either.

    I’m just going to download these manually but just wanted to give you a heads up.

    Carl:

    Your post is absolutely on point and is why we decided to add a show like this to the network. We will give our people culture. It’s who we are.

    Next Saturday’s show will be an important overview of who owns and controls the music industry. This is a MUST see for everyone.

    Thank you Carolyn!

    Sir, how do you reconcile the racial objectives of the white network – which necessarily involve biological hierchy and an appreciation for aristocratic European history – with your contempt for class, affinity for equality, and requisite artistic freedom?

    @29:24 “..Beethoven hated the class system and didn’t respect that, nor do I.”

    @41:24 “I take everybody as a person, even Beethoven, my bestfriends, the people walking down the street. I don’t care where you come from.”

    @48:21 “I’m commanded by God to be a servant, and I try to be to my fellow man, but I have this artist inside me that I can’t have anybody controlling anything that I do musically, I resent that…”

    @16:03 Who’s the person, who is the person, in fact, I grew up in America thinking if a person came from nowhere, just nowhere, and pick themselves off the ground and became a success, that was the true American spirit. And, we’re losing that, now everybody is a victim, right?”

    John.. and thank you for your observations. And why do you believe we are based on biological hierarchy (splg?)? I do think we just want to be left to ourselves and let the other races be left to themselves. I do think we are superior in abilities, but that is not the whole argument. The Jews have super intelligence, but are a morally and ethically corrupt group. We don’t want them around us for these reasons more than probably anything else.

    To answer you as well as I can:

    John: “your contempt for class, affinity for equality, and requisite artistic freedom?”

    Robert: I will always have contempt for class, as I am a White man and feel the only class is made by an individual’s deeds. I have no affinity for equality. I believe outcome is predicated on effort and ability and no gov’t should stop that. Communism is equality. And there can be no art if one is bowing down to another viewpoint. Would you admire that, knowing that they are not saying what they truly believe?

    John: “I take everybody as a person, even Beethoven, my bestfriends, the people walking down the street. I don’t care where you come from.”

    Robert: How would you NOT take anyone as an individual? Granted, apart from race, as my beliefs are that the difference between a Black and a White is the difference between a lion and a gazelle. They are not comparable.

    John: “I’m commanded by God to be a servant,…”

    Robert: I am uneasy with this issue as a person and an artist. This bothers me in that I have this artist’s rage inside of me. I always have to separate the command by the Lord to be a servant (and I do try hard to serve another) but never allow someone to dissuade me from clear thinking such as ‘to go along, just to get along.’

    John: “a person came from nowhere, just nowhere, and pick themselves off the ground and became a success, that was the true American spirit.”

    Robert: I certainly don’t grovel at the feet of someone that inherits money (Paris Hilton for example) when there are individuals that start from zero and are successful. I admire that.

    I hope this clarifies some things (but probably not:-)

    Very pleasant listening. Thanks, Robert.

  10. A needed change of pace from typical WN sites. Enjoyed it much. I find myself spending more and more time at this venue. Keep up the great work.
