Episode #428: FALL PLEDGE DRIVE EDITION Part 1: I mean, what’s not to like about musical genres such as:
“the French are Oui”
“Up with Berry, and don’t Give Me No Lip, Man”
“Desafinado is Dee-licious”
and of course “What IF the 3rd Reich Had Won the War.”

Fall 2013 Pledge Drive week 1, with Ron Thums.

Week One of the Fall Pledge Drive, too much going on to keep track of the tracks… with guests J Otis Powell?! AND Marya M. from Art Matters… Thank you KFAI supporters !!

Tonight as part of the KFAI fall pledge drive we revisited a theme we have not done in awhile: A Fistful of Dub: A Dread Western Special. The Echo Chamber headed out to the wild, wild west! The anchors of the show (and the two items that were the germ of the project) were Roots Control’s fantastic Dread Western album (on Wordsound) and the Ennio Morricone soundtrack to the spaghetti western movie The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. Tonight’s show was dreader than dread – with some great stuff from the Halloween at High Noon series on High Noon records. Also fitting right in was the Trojan Records “western reggae” compilation “The Big Gundown”. More great stuff in the mix, including: the excellent “Return of Gringo” album from Prince Fatty meets the Mutant Hi-Fi; Vincenzo Cipollone (“Far West” album); Guvna (with “Fistful of Dub”); Dave & Ansel Collins (“Double Barrel”); Michael Rose (“Gunfighter”); “Bankrobber” from The Clash, plus the version from John Brown’s Body; Fully Fullwood (“Buffalo Cowboy”); Josie Wales, Beenie Man & Ini Kamoze (“Jungle & Western Cowboy Style”); and much, much more…

Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the War of the Worlds we bring you three of the entries in the War of the Worlds 75th Contest.
