KFAI celebrated Black History Month with a special day of programming on February 19th. From 6am until 9pm, KFAI featured a variety of programming including music, history, and dialogue from members of the Twin Cities community and from respected national sources. Normal Write on Radio programming resumes the following week.
Tonight the good doctors of dub presented a very cool special entitled Japan Loves Reggae. Of course we played a number of tracks from Dry Heavy, Mute Beat, Little Tempo, and Likkle Mai. But we also aired some new artists that have never been played on the Echo Chamber — like Mantis, Fishmans, Bagdad Cafe the Trench Town, and Dubsensemania. Also, for ambience we had a bit of traditional Japanese music (overlayed and for seques), clips from Godzilla, a theme song from the Hamtaro anime series, and a nice jingle from Likkle Mai herself. Konichiwa!
