A bit of Love…and plenty of Dub… Not some kind of mushy Valentine’s show, but heavy, sexy and deep. First up was the new Berlin Sessions EP with the old-school sound from Aldubb, Dubmatix, & Mighty Howard. Fitting our Love theme tonight groove-wise were: Prince Fatty, Elizabeth Archer & The Equators, Dubmatix, Richard & I, Lefthand (feat. JEN), The English Beat, Lisa Shaw, Third World, and more… Finally, DJ Baby Swiss chose the track “Finally Your Day Has Come” by The Dualers to dedicate to the people of the great country of Egypt!
Tonght’s program is all music, with a combination of old and brand-new songs, sung by artists from the past and new music now being played. The songs are all in French, by artists from France and many French-speaking countries. Caryl will announce the music in French and Olaf will give the title and a brief commentary of the song in English.
Sarah Blake, author of Grange House, calls in to talk with us about her World War Two era novel, The Postmistress, which explores the lives of three women – a Postmaster, a radio broadcaster and a young wife.
Poet Matt Mauch also joins us in the studio to talk about his newest collection of poetry, Prayer Book. Matt Mauch teaches at Normandale Community College and coordinates the reading series there.
