Tonight The Echo Chamber commemorated the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. – featuring the “I Have A Dream” speech as well as parts of several other speeches. But of course, it was the great music which fit the theme and really made the show… This included tracks like the brand new “Inspiration” from E.N Young’s “Live, Love, Stay Up” album; “Revolution Dub” from Ras Bruno meets Don Fe (on the new “Dub Bibliotheque Vol.1” from Svaha Sound); “Upon the Bridge” from Groundation; “Solidarity” from Black Symbol (on Reggae Archive Records); the new “Here I Stand” single from Taj Weekes & Adowa; “Redemption Song” from Bob Marley & the Wailers; and others. Also tonight, some choice new music from Stand High Patrol (from the album “A Matter of Scale”), Riverside Rockers, Capital Letters, Alpha Steppa, clectic Roots Ensemble, and Nalchro (from the new “Vaticaen Box Vol. 2” compilation on ODG). More great sounds from Hirie (an extended showcase mix of “Smile”), Comando del Dub meets Lee Java, The Mighty Diamonds (who were just in town!), Gaudi, Dub Club (Tom Chasteen & Tippa Lee), The Revolutionaries, Pale Rider, Hempolics, Le Grand Miercoles, Jackie Mittoo, The Observers, The Senior All Stars, and more…

Ted Woxland, drummer of DONX, formerly of Dick Stranger, Teddy & the Turks and tour manager of King Khan and BBQ Show, brought a killer collection of eclectic favorites of garage, punk, post-punk, rock and disco from around the world and shared stories of bands he's worked with, and friends.

This quarter it's all Radio Detectives on Sound Affects.
