First Thursday Host Leigh Combs

All music show !


There were just a few more tracks on the flecos that Kristina needed to play before she could be done with this theme.

Tales of life on the road with Willie Nelson from Joyride Media

Creole music from Cedric Watson kicks off today's program followed by Franco-phonic sounds from Parisota Hot Club & Cafe Accordion Orch.  As the program progresses we shift gears to Latin dance from Cuba combo Havana D'Primera coming soon to an old movie house near you… (Varsity Theater in Dinkytown Thur. 8/7/14) !!  The final moments keep the beat singing and the feet swinging featuring Cuban classic Celia Cruz singing songs of Ismael Rivera from Puerto Rico then finally a taste of the new release from Sierra Leone's Refugee All-Stars.

Dub overload tonight… Brand new dub and roots from: Konkrete Roots (“Rudies in Dub” on Dubophonic); Mr. Lion (“Razberry Serrotonin EP” on Svaha Sound); Mystica Tribe (self-released “Lizard EP”); Don Goliath (“Calling On Jah” on Dubkey); and Echorek with the cool single “Dubber than Paradise”. Kicked off the show with a new track ripped from the headlines from Mad Professor & Vivian Jones – “Who Can Help Them?”, where “them” refers to the Palestinians in Gaza. Another highlight was a crucial dubwise mix from Dub Thomas from the Dubophonic netlabel. More new tunes from Pressure, ZionNoiz, Kojo Neatness, Talisman, Obatala Segundo (Mystica Tribe remix), Collie Buddz, and Panchasila. Filling the dubwise journey with more from YesKing, Augustus Pablo, Val Bennett, Shpongle, The Revolutionaries, Bad Brains, Dennis Bovell, Kalya Scintilla, and more…
