Roots

During the first hour we listened to a special about the music of the Talesh region in north western Iran. The show was produced by Dan Rein and Baktash Boghrati.
In the second hour we had in studio guests, Deep Midnight. Deep Midnight plays Greek Rembetika music and are Viv Corringham and James Holdman.

   A very grateful thanks to Ron Thums and Jean Silverberg for coming in and doing the show on very short notice while I was taking time to meet with doctors regarding my mom's medical status. As many of you know, she has been hospitalized since December 18th from diverticulitis complications, and it has been a real battle. Ron and Jean came up with some great music and a stellar show. Also, many of you remember them doing Radio Rumpus Room on Friday nights, which they decided to retire not too long ago.

So much new dub…so little time. Another boatload of new music: the fine new album from Junior Culture (Dan Dada Records); Bombay Dub Orchestra’s club-wise “The New York Remixes” (Six Degrees Records); Bomba Estereo’s cool new “Elegancia Tropical” (Soundway Records); Akasha’s sublime new Into the Web (on Dubmission); and more new material from Trevor “The Technician” McKenzie, Red Star Martyrs, Yeyo Perez/Puppashan, Dub Caravan, DU3normal, La Yegros, Bandulu Dub vs. Krusseldorf, Sorian, Addis Pablo, Suns of Dub, Phoniandflore, Jashwa Moses, and Bonobo. And that was just the first half of the show… DJ Baby Swiss was “Pourin’ Dubbles”, playing two-fers from greats like Desmond Dekker, Dean Fraser, the Skatalites, Aston “Familyman” Barrett, Tommy McCook, and Big Youth. And rounding things out we included Mayd Hubb, Infinite Third, Impact All Stars, Etana, Martin Zobel & Soulrise, Rebelution, Terakaft, i.rebel meets Dub Dragoon, Fedayi Pacha, David “Fathead” Newman, King Tubby/Jacob Miller, and more…
