Tonight Dr. StrangeDub and DJ Baby Swiss parked themselves at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual Echo Beach end of summer special. It was very different kind of Echo Chamber, as we ventured into some twangy, instrumental surf rock, cool old school RB, a variety of lounge sounds, world sounds, swanky tropical jazz, weird electronic music, and movie soundtracks. But don’t think for a minute that the dub doctors completely forgot our ska, dub and reggae foundation. Some deep Nyabinghi meditation followed the martinis and kali…as the waves came crashing down on the sands of Echo Beach.
Had a couple of interviews this show so things were pretty hopping in the studio. Sweet Mama J Joined me and we talked to Joe Ely about his appearance Sept. 9th at the Cabooze then talked to local funksters NAGA about a CD release party at the historic Uptown Bar in Minneapolis. So below is only a partial list. Too much going on for only one pair of hands to handle.
A big thanks to Molly Maher and Nate Westgore of Willie’s American Guitars for stopping by this morning. We chatted about the upcoming Joe Ely show at the Cabooze that we’re sponsoring.

For this show, we were joined in studio by listener and highly valued music contributor Glen Olson who was kind enough to visit us all the way from Escondido, CA. It was great to hear him share his stories about country music and collecting it. Thanks so much for visiting us Glen!
