Another night of great new releases, some cool reggae oldies, some world sounds, and a few real eclectic items. Kicking off the fun with fresh new roots from Human Digital (on the "Doodad EP" from McPullish's Charlie's Records); Yabass Yaba Radics (featuring Michael Rose); Downtown Beat (from the album "Home" on LaFamille); Lord Hissayas (from Moshi Kamachi's excellent Earth Strong Vol. 1 compilation on KingDub); Ras Bruno (with Culture Bown & Sista Caro) on Dan Dada Records; Jashwa Moses from his upcoming 12" release on Sugar Shack; and Martin Zobel & Soulrise from the sublime "Land of the Free" album on Irie Vibrations (released June 2012). More new sounds from Black Roots, Signal Orange  (from the clubby "Flugestunde Eins" compilation from the Libelle group/label), Ephraim Juda, Kabaka Pyramid, and Mystical Weapons (Sean Lennon's latest project). In the great oldies department we had Laurel Aitken,  Yabby You (aka Yabby U), Wayne Jarrett & Silver Fox, Pablo Gad, among others. World-wise sounds coming in from Souljazz Orchestra, Rupa & the April Fishes, Novalima, Beats Antique, Dub Colossus, and others. And in DJ Baby Swiss' eclectix mix we found Emil Richards & the Microtonal Blues Band, Jah Wobble & Deep Space, Mutant Frogs, YMCK, and "Nashville Sputnik: The Deep South/Outer Space Productions of Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan".  How's that for a variety of cool sounds?

Edgar Poe was born January 19th, 1809. We'll celebrate his birth and genius with another episode focusing on his work. This time however, it will be decidedly less spooky.

Called the father of the detective story, he was the first well-known American writer to attempt to earn a living through writing alone. His poem The Raven, penned in 1845, numbers among the best-known poems in national literature. However, for all the information we know about Edgar, an equal amount of his life remains a mystery. Much of the distorted picture we have long held of Poe can be attributed to Rufus Griswold who was, in fact, a jerk. After Poe's death, Rufus published a libelous obituary followed by a slanderous memoir; all aimed at defaming Edgar. It didn't work.

In this program, you'll hear several of Basil Rathbone's readings of Poe, an excerpt from The Cavalcade of America's excellent radio play "Edgar Allan Poe," Terence Stamp reciting A Dream within A Dreamand The Alan Parson's Project prog rock masterpiece: "To One In Paradise."

Happy 204th Birthday, Edgar!
