Music Host / Engineer:  Mark Koerner

Classic voices of int'l. music's early years & a brand new Timba band from Cuba in town for a concert in Dinkytown recently.

Mixing up old and new, dubwise and otherwise tonight. Started things out with the new “The Best of Boom One Records”, followed by the excellent new “Gold Dust” album from Earl 16 & Manasseh and the “Anbessa Dub” album from Zvuloon Dub System. To celebrate the upcoming show in Minneapolis, we did a set that included Black Market Brass, Chicago Afrobeat Project, and the legendary Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen. After the first hour, our pal Randy showed up and did a very cool set that included Paula Morelenbaum, Horace Andy, Orchestra Baobab, Psyco On Da Bus (ft. Tony Allen), Yabby You, and those crazy Meridian Brothers. More eclectic fun from: The Freak Fandango Orchestra, Lee Scratch Perry (from the new “Back On the Controls” album), Secret Panels vs. The Assessor, O. De Lanzac, The Clash, Stereolab, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Kalya Scintilla, Pale Rider, Keith & Tex, and many more
