Some ska mixed in with the reggae this afternoon. A set by the Mount Rushmore of Reggae…[Marley, Tosh, Wailer and Cliff ]. Some island-style tracks by singers not known for reggae [Joan Armatrading, Taj Mahal, James Hunter]
Another stream of conscious new dubwise music… Starting off with “Steve Steppa meets Samson Inna Brass Echo Chamber” (on Springline) and “Heart So Cold” from the Reggae Bubblers (on Yaba Pot). Added to this was the new single “United” from Sylford Walker and McPullish (on Charlie’s). Also excellent new music from Madtone, Victoria Moralez, Purdy, MrKnice, Missin Red, Gappy Ranks, The Orb (with David Gilmour), and Beats Antique. Finally…the “15 Years… on a Dubmission” compilation (on Dubmission).
Girls It Aint Easy Yes that’s right DJ Ren is back from a three week hiatus. In this episode we touch you with some Mexican and Colombian cumbia. Let your ears explode with some sexy sassy’ funk and some Tejano music that’ll have you saying, If you need me I’ll be listening to Radio Pocho. As always we keep it sexy with some love injection in our weekly segment Slip Into Something Nice.
The Radio Pocho team is back and we’ll have you shaking that thang of yours.
It was a crazy kind of night….in a cloud of ganja smoke…in the ol’ Echo Chamber. OK…OK, so there wasn’t really any ganja smoke in the studio (too bad), just plenty of herb-inspired reggae and dub, with some great soundbytes from “Reefer Madness”. Dr. StrangeDub and Baby Swiss relaxed and kicked back and presented the annual Echo Chamber “Free the Marijuana” special. The show was part of KFAI-FM’s biannual pledge drive…and was in support of Proposition 19 in California. Legalize it!
