The music section of this program (the first 1½ hours) has a single theme: A celebration of the successful rescue of the 33 miners in northern Chile. The last ½ hour of the program presents an interview with Mario Vargas Llosa, winner of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature, and a reading, in his own voice, of a small fragment from “Conversación en la catedral”.
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).
