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, but we had many other rhymesayers — from Jamaican DJs, to beat poets, and hip hop artists.
New music from Pet Shop Boys (who happened to be releasing a new album the same day as a new Depeche Mode album), William Fitzsimmons, Glenn Tilbrook and Extra Golden. You must love Extra Golden! Kenyan traditional rhythms meet western rock n roll. Big thanks to Johnny, ST and listener-members for support throughout the drive and on this second pledge edition of PWB.
