The Echo Chamber Obama Inaugural MLK Commemorative Special from January 21….broadcast just hours after Barack Obama became the 44th President of the U.S. With songs dedicated to Barack Obama by Cocoa Tea, Mista Majah P, and Will.I.Am and Friends; soundbytes from Martin Luther King Jr. and President Barack Obama (including his full inaugural address indub); and plenty of fitting tracks. It was a very special night indeed.
In the first hour we listened to a concert from 4th Annual Minnesota Sur Seine Festival. From 16 May, 2008 it was An Evening with Federico Garcia Lorca. We heard music performed by pianist, Tony Hymas, with Michelle Kinney, Jacqueline Ultan on cellos, and guitarist, Jef Lee Johnson.

Recording engineer was Mario Vano, concert was edited by Dan Rein.
During the second hour we took a musical journey through Ireland.
