Quite a show tonight! Brand new tunes from Gary "Nesta" Pine, Dubblestandart, Clinton Fearon, Max Romeo, Dubby Doo & Hugh Mundell Jr., and more! Plus David Asher of THEPROCESS did a live phone-in radio interview and sent us a special album mini-mix to air, and more PROCESS tunes were in the mix. And joining David, DJ Baby Swiss and I on the air, we had African Fireman and DJ Diamond One in the house too! (Catch African Fireman, DJ Diamond One, Ru Bwoy O and more 9/9 @ Mama Africa in St. Paul!).
We speak with Tracy Barone about her debut novel Happy Family. She earned her MFA in dramatic writing at NYU and has worked as a screenwriter and playwright. She has worked on and produced a number of films, including Ali and Men in Black.
On today's show, the Mark Cameron Band was in to play live and to talk about the trip to Memphis in February of 2017 to represent Minnesota in the International Blues Challenge. The band has several gigs coming up to accumulate money to pay for the trip including a gig this weekend at the Boundary Waters Blues Fest on Saturday August 20th at 4pm. You can also catch them September 18th at Wilebski's Blues Saloon.
