Tonight the Echo Chamber presented the annual “Word Beat I Powa” dub poetry, beat poetry, and spoken word special. Of course, it was dub poetry that set the foundation and included the dub poets Ras Takura, Jazz’min Tutum, Haji Mike, Mutabaruka, Jean Binta Breeze, Benjamin Zephaniah, Oku Onoura, and of course, the incomparable Linton Kwesi Johnson.
A very special thanks to Evangelist jacqulyn Houston for coming in and spending the moring with me and the songs of praise audience. As always a hearty thanks to Dr. Jeanette Robinson in Dayton OH for her faithfulness in phoning in the weekly health tip for the songs of praise audience. Thanks to you, the listener.
