This week we covered a lot of bases in the Echo Chamber: sending our heart out to Japan with music by a number of Japanese artists; getting to some women artists we missed last week; and just playing the newest stuff. Also, we debuted a new segment called “Roots of Dub”, where we go back in the roots & dub archive for a full set.
“Memories of El Pocho” On this episode of RP we give our fellow Pochas Erica & Amy some felicitaciones for their engagements. (We send our condolences to their boyfriends…just kidding) Also a SPECIAL announcement regarding the future of Radio Pocho.
Musically we have some classic rolas from the 60s and a cameo by Huggie Boy (DJ Miguel Vargas thinks it’s Huggie Bear). Mellow Man Ace and Lighter Shade of Brown remind us that Pochos also rap.
And real talk…R Kelly showers us with his latest single “When A Woman Loves”.
We started the morning with Cibo Matto, as all of our minds are on Japan right now. I have since learned Cibo Matto will reunite for a special benefit show in NYC, with other great artists on the bill, to send aid to the Japanese people. Thanks for the great calls and suggestions for more music by artists from Japan.
