With the coming 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina landfall (August 29th), we heard topical music released by New Orleans artists, and a bit about upcoming coverage of the event (If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise, Spike Lee, HBO this week; and, Frontline: Law Disorder, PBS, TPT 2 August 31st 9pm or September 1st 3am). We also heard the usual mix of almost all new music from all over the world, and the Roe Family Radio Roundup was back on at 10:30am.
Tonight we debuted the excellent new Blue King Brown double-CD “Worldwize Part 1: North & South”. Also brand new tonight: the very cool “Haffi Win” album from Ammoye + Rise Ashen. Rounding out the new music list were Eric Blowtorch, Nickodemus, Kris Naphtali, Lucy Woodward, The Soundheads, Uptown Rebel, and O. De Lanzac.
