Eclectic

The Queen is in the Counting House, Part 2 – a baseball mystery from the Cape Cod Radio Mystery Theater. Captain Underhill watches over a young ball player in Fenway Park.
And some short silly sketches from the Big Fun Radio Funtime show in Minneapolis, by Fearless Comedy Productions.

Episode #431: The LOAD of 45s Show.

A Middle Eastern musical variety mix – from Montreal, Morocco via the UK, & Israel in the first 40 mins. That is followed by a three song set by Toronto’s Kobo Town for a new calypsonian poetry/activism. Then we hear a two song selection from Ethiopian retro group from Boston’s Berklee School of Music, Debo Band, who recently played the Cedar Cultural Center. Then the highlight of the show — a first listen to an exclusive interview with Oliver Mtukudzi, superstar from Zimbabwe, Southern Africa — conducted by Minna Zhou who joined me on today’s Global Beat.

Tonight we debuted the excellent new compilation The Eastern Rising on the Svaha Sound label; the soulful “My Homeys” from Marina P; Cornel Campbell’s righteous “New Scroll” on Zion High Productions and the great “Eek-ology” set (2-CD, 1-DVD) chronicling the career of Eek-A-Mouse (on 17 N. Parade/VP). With Mad Professor & Joe Ariwa in town this week (at 7th St. Entry), we put together a varied Ariwa set – which included the Professor’s sublime “Samba Dub Experience” album. More new music tonight from HIRIE, The Process, Mungo’s Hi-Fi (ft. Lady Ann), General Jah Mikey, Bass Culture Players, Brain Damage meets Vibronic, Zombies of Death, Dr. Epidemic, and Karma Dub. More great tunes from Orquestra Brasileira de Musica Jamaicana (OBMJ), Little Tempo, Ill-Esha, Luz, John Brown’s Body, SXtheMadArtist, Up, Bustle & Out, Rhea Creole Lawrence & The Dub Master, Tommy McCook, Minneapolis Dub Ensemble, and more…

Mrs. Glass (Austin, TX) and Lori Barbero joined Spin with Cyn, sharing songs and stories in advance of their week of performances in Minneapolis!
