DESPERATE MEASURES
Back From the Dead & When All Else Fails from Long Haul Productions

Tonight the Echo Chamber presented part 2 of “Around the World in 20+ Dubs”, the 6th annual special which originally aired on Echo Beach on 4/27 (WLUW-FM, Chicago). Once again Dr. StrangeDub joined the TurnTableTerrorist (Terry C) for the dubwise journey. But, before embarking on ATWD #6, the good doctor filled the first hour with some excellent new releases including: Tara Putra (the new In Dubland); the new “Survive” release from Garrison Hawk (with Sly & Robbie) on Bill Laswell’s M.O.D. Technologies label; the Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars’ new “Radio Salone” (on Cumbancha); and the Nazarenes’ excellent new Meditation (on I Grade).

We speak with Number One New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris about her new novel Deadlocked. She is the author of many urban fantasy novels, including the Sookie Stackhouse series that became the HBO series True Blood.

We also speak with former trial lawyer, Mark Munger, who is a District Court Judge and the author of several novels, among them Suomalaiset: The People of the Marsh and Pigs: A Trial Lawyer's Story. His new book is Laman's River.

Patty & the Buttons at the Red Stag Supperclub
Produced by Tom Garneau

Patty and the Buttons formed in 2008 when accordionist/vocalist Patrick “Patty” Harison returned to the Midwest. Inspired by his travels and work Panorama Jazz Band, Loose Marbles and the Baby Soda Jazz Band, he formed the Buttons to continue his love of hot rhythm and happy feet. The band’s eclectic repertoire includes New Orleans Traditional Jazz, Western Swing, Gypsy Melodies, Dust Bowl Ballads, Jug Music and 1930’s Popular Song. The core instrumentation of accordion, clarinet, guitar and bass is light and swift, but also beautifully melancholy and lush. Known as an accordionist, Patty doubles as the bands vocalist, with a vocal style that has been described as “Tom Waits meets Rudy Vallee.” This show was produced for KFAI by Tom Garneau.
