"My ex-wife kidnapped my children took all my money and fled the country. I lost my family, cars, home and job in less than half a year. I wound up living in a car for 4 years. I used to sleep in the Barnes and Noble bookstores and one day I heard this music and it woke me up. I purchased a tape for a couple of dollars and played it in my car when I went to sleep at night. That is the only reason I didn't blow my brains out. I was in heaven listening to this very song back in 1998. Thank you Bill Neal!"
This is the song:

It has taken longer than expected but we are in escrow for a new home in an older house in the historical district of Tarpon Springs, Florida. The bonus room will make a fine studio from which to broadcast new episodes of "Elk Whistle Songs And Stories".

Haven't posted here in a while - we have sold our home in California and are now in the greater Tampa Bay, Florida area, staying with my son and his family while we look for our own home. I hope to get back on-line soon but life is still a little tumultuous and far from workable for webcasting. Looking forward to being back soon....

For my friends who follow my webcasts on www.NuMuBu.com/BillNealElkWhistle, I am taking a short break from my regular schedule of every Tuesday evening at 6 PM while my family makes a major life change - we have sold our home in California and are moving cross-continent to the Tampa, Florida, area to be close to family. I will be back on the air in early to mid-March, after the dust settles. Meanwhile, my friend Jim Tzu will be broadcasting his quiet, tasty, and contemplative flute music from his Music Room - check for his schedule and listen in.

Read my latest blog post and the explore other posts to understand more about how and why I came to be here. I hope for the best for all of us!

A review of my "Heart Song" CD, from 1998:

"Heart Song" by Bill Neal ("Elk Whistle") is an excellent example of traditionally rooted Native American flute music performed by an artist of exceptional technical ability, inspired by the power of spirit."
— Lee Johnson, "Voice of the Wind", International Native American Flute Association
Posted on Thu., Nov. 13, 2014 - 8:57 PM


Gaaaa! Just as my weakling little MacBook Air won't connect to let me broadcast my weekly "Elk Whistle Songs and Stories" program, it also will not connect to let me listen to any of the other artists here! And, since Adobe Flash Player is required to connect to the NuMuBu broadcasts, my iPhone and iPad will not let me listen either - aaaa! And more - if I can't tune in to the other artists here with my iPhone and iPad, presumably none of my friends and listeners can tune in to me with them either. Dang!

Hmmm? Never heard of a Puffin browser. Thanks for the tip, Rod - I'll give it a try.

What about for Samsung products? I have Facebook friends who have tried to tune in with Samsung phones and not been able to connect - not sure if it was just their mistake or the phone itself. I wonder if other artists here have had these problems reported to them by their listeners or is it just mine?

Fri., Nov. 14, 2014 - 4:30 PM


I will try using it to to tune into other artists' broadcasts here, Rod - hopefully I can then recommend it to my listeners.

I have a question for all my friends here who have listened to the songs that I have posted or are in my videos: do you hear any of them as possibly being evocative of emotional pain, loss, regret, or lost love? I ask this because I'm choosing a song to submit for a film soundtrack and I know from experience that listeners hear a minor key flute song in various ways including haunting, sad, even morose. I don't but others do. What do you think? Is there a song that strikes you as fitting for a film scene requiring these emotional qualities?

Elk Whistle At The Museum Of Tolerance

Playing in the atrium of the Los Angeles Museum of Tolerance for Native American and Native Alaskan Heritage Month
Posted on Thu., Nov. 6, 2014 - 12:11 PM


 

This was recorded and edited together by a friend who works at the museum, one of only two videos of me playing live so far.

Fri., Nov. 7, 2014 - 1:13 PM

In the physical/analog world, it's called a flute circle and includes all players regardless of experience or skill. I would think the more skilled and talented players would be more desirable for NuMuBu. There is a significant amount of organizational effort required - I see it as more of a monthly event at this point, until more players join here and get the needed live streaming skills. But it would be interesting and pleasurable because, although the instrument is technically very simple, the sounds, songs, and styles of playing are very different.

Fri., Nov. 7, 2014 - 3:43 PM

I put some time and energy into it previously but I will keep pushing some of my friends who still haven't considered live streaming as part of their performing opportunities.

Hey Bill, sorry I wasn't able to make it Wed. This is the first time I've been online since Monday. Wednesday I was bedridden from fatigue. No get up and go juice. I'll try to be sue to make it to the next one.

I hope you've overcome your fatigue, Steven - how does that happen? Keep your health and look forward to Wednesday - see you then.

Sun., Oct. 26, 2014 - 3:00 AM

I was using my lumbar traction unit and over stretched. The pains were like I was having a heart attack for the first week, three days of which I was bed ridden. On 10/30/14. I'll never do that again. I was out for fifteen days. I guess it must have triggered my COPD because I've been short of breath and coughing up mucus, no blood! To top things off my mail order prescriptions were sent to Washington and are sitting in the post office in Burlington, wa. I had to re-order, hoping they will arrive today, my Pro-air inhalers are in the package. I call to speak with a supervisor and she acted like I was a thorn in her side. When she ask me if there as anything else she could help me with I said, Chantel, an apology would have been nice and hung up. I can finally take a deep breath again. Waiting for your live broadcast bro!

Wed., Nov. 19, 2014 - 1:43 PM

Boy - got to be gentle on yourself, my friend. You know the broadcast is now on Tuesday at 6 PM Pacific Time, Steven? Take care of yourself now and message me on Facebook if you want to talk more.

Thank you so much for your beautiful music. I hope to catch your show next week! Native American flute is my favorite sound, I actually just gave my husband a birthday gift of a Navajo flute with a turtle engraving animal totem. Magical. Blessings, brother.
Posted on Thu., Oct. 23, 2014 - 9:38 PM


 

Thank you, Aliza - tell your husband to go listen to the wind and the birds with his flute and become part of their song. From your description, it might be one of Jonah Thompson's flutes. I wish your husband well on his "flute journey".
