Eclectic

Fresh from dancing to Cedric Watson & his Bijou Creole, I had to start off the show with a taste of his latest “Le Troubadour Creole”. But the show goes on to Spain, pre-columbian and multicultural then North Africa, before ending with a salute to Paco de Lucia, and a song from Ukraine to end the show.

Two real exciting new releases tonight in Dub Spencer & Trance Hill’s “Burroughs In Dub” (Echo Beach), and the self-titled “Prince Fatty vs. Mungo’s Hi-Fi” (Mr. Bongo). The excitement continued with the debut of Papa Sambor’s “Mystic Garden” (Dubopionic), plus Rod Anton & the Ligerians’ upcoming release “WEvolution” (Wall On Stage). But we weren’t done there: more excellent releases including: Ashley’s “Babylon Institution” on Dubkey; Digid’s “Dub 2 Babylon” (on MindStep); Oli Olinga’s “Love Me or Leave Me” single on CrudoBilbao; and Daleth Karl’s “People” single on Sugar Shack (mixed by RSD). Coming from the archives, we had the pleasure of airing one of a boatload of digitally remastered early Michael Rose singles – which good friend Eric Blowtorch has made his passion – plus the new 20th Anniversary re-release of the 1994 ethno-electronic classic“Maya” album from Banco de Gaia (on Disco Gecko), and the re-released “Good Life” album from the incomparable Heptones. On top of all these new releases, we continued to celebrate the ladies as part of National Women’s History Month, including: Hollie Cook, The Angel, Suphala, Sinead O’Connor, L&S SymfHoney, Likkle Mai, Kirsty Rock (with Trumysic), Ari Up & the Slits, J.C. Lodge, Pauline Black (with The Selecter), Blood Sisters, Little Annie, Lisa Shaw, Jean Binta Breeze, Catherine Howe, Ill:Esha, and Jagha (of Ragana).

The International Women’s Month show! I spun numerous women artists – local and far! Plus, Joan Vorderbruggen, Hennepin Theater Trust Arts District Coordinator swung by to talk about upcoming events and art shows, and share a few favorite women artists as well!

Detectives old and new. Garson Krebs, P.I. in The Divice is the new one. And Pat Novak For Hire in Escape from Prison, featuring Jack Webb, is from 1949.
