We reached back into our archives to replay our very first show from April 29, 2009. This show spotlights the palo of alegrias and maestro Timo Lozano tells Kristina a great story about how he came to join the Jose Greco Flamenco Company.
The Media Addicts is a modern jazz quartet with an aggressive, image evoking sound. Whereas “smooth jazz” leaves out the dirt and sweat, Media Addicts happily inserts those elements into edgy, sometimes post-apocalyptic sounding compositions. Check out the Media Addicts here

A special show tonight as we aired part 2 of the 5th annual “Around the World in 20+ Dubs” (originally aired 4/29 on Echo Beach at WLUW-FM, Chicago). But, before the ATW 20+ special mix, we started things off with Taj Weekes & Adowa in advance of their upcoming MPLS show (6/14 – 7th St Entry) & their upcoming appearance at the Bayfront Reggae Festival (7/17 – Duluth,MN). Followed up with Nkulee Dube, who will also be at the Bayfront Fest (7/16) from her new album “My Way”.
DJ Baby Swiss entered hour 3 smelling like a rose… in addition to 2 spritzes of Perfume, the ol’ time travel machine named After Hours took us back to ‘Round Midnight, Omars Attacked, firing strawberries from a white black hole in outer space, a Mouse unwrapped a snap bar somewhere on Mars, Yello dubbed in a tub, and Hugh Cornwell sprung a gingerbread girl from prison and spirited her away to an opium den… all in the Echo Chamber.
We talk with William Forstchen about his novel One Second After, which is about what would happen after an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack on our nation. He is a professor of history at Montreat College in North Carolina and the author of more than 40 books, including the award-winning We Look Like Men of War.
We also talk with Pamela Cory about her new novel Hassie Calhoun, a story of Las Vegas in the Rat Pack era.
