Tonight we re-broadcast the now famous 2nd annual Around the World in 20+ Dubs special, originally broadcast on April 4, 2008 on Echo Beach:http://www.wluw.org/programs/playlist.cfm?GetProgramID=233 (WLUW-FM, Chicago). This brainchild of TurntableTerrorist (Terry C.) featured dubs and dub-influenced tracks from 23 countries around the globe.
Shannon Selberg comes on the show to debut his new Heroine Sheiks album Journey to the End of the Knife on Amphetamine Reptile records. Released on May 26th, 2008. Really fun interview. I wish he’d come back every week – always entertaining while Shannon’s around. Great Live show at the Uptown Bar this week as well.
I’ve lost the playlist somehow. damnit. I’ll find it.
This show is full of homegrown music(11 out of 32 tunes). Probably influenced by my weekend listening to local acts. Friday night, April 18th, I went to hear Big Walter Smith The Groove Merchants at Famous Dave’s and on Sun the 20th, I had a great time listening to the smooth male blues at Dean’s in St. Paul.
