JEAN SILVERBERG SITS  IN FOR PAM K TODAY WITH A GREAT LINE UP FOR STONE SOUP. THANKS, JEAN!!

Kicking things off tonight with the excellent new “Rise Up and Love” album from Doktor Lond & Agarfa (Roots Lab Int’l/Springline). This was followed by the new dub-heavy “In the Chamber of Dub” album from General Levy & Joe Ariwa (son of Mad Professor). On top of this we had new tunes from The Dynamics, Tony Dubshot, Dub Colossus, Dr. Echo, Madness, Jah Marnyah, and Full Dub. Then, in the middle of the program, we aired part 1 of Dr. StrangeDub’s “In the garden of Dub” mix. This dubwise mix celebrates the pleasures of gardening, the roots of life, and the seasons of nature.

On August 17, 1862 a group of four young Dakota men on a hunting expedition killed five settlers who lived along the Minnesota river in what is now southwest Minnesota…and a war began. This week marks the 50th anniversary of this historical conflict. A Clash of Cultures: The 1862 Dakota War is a production of ampers-Diverse Radio for Minnesota Communities. Join ampers stations across Minnesota for this 60 minute documentary and more.

Today we spent some time with the wonders of the Minnesota State Fair. We also had Nikki and the Ruemates play live.
