Tonight the long wait was over – with the debut of “Echo Chamber – Around the World in Dub – V. 5 & 6”, our 3rd dubwise compilation on Dan Dada records (available FREE on Bandcamp). From the new release we started the show with our pal Dubby Doo’s “.38 Special Dub” and Svaha Soundsystem’s “Destroyer of Worlds”. This was followed by Eclectic Roots Ensemble’s “Good Seeds” from the new “Best of Boom One Records vol. 1” album. And then came the brand new “Gold Dust” album from Earl 16 & Manasseh. More new music from Hayereyah (from the upcoming “Humility Before Honour” album); Second Sky (from the new “Touching The Surface” album on Rhythm & Culture); Yin Yang Audio; Bombay Monkey; and Bombay Royale (from the new “The Island of Dr. Electrico” on Hope Street). Finally, two more from the Echo Chamber – Around the World in Dub – V. 5 & 6 release: SXtheMadArtist with “Rainbow Off the Sky”, Ted Sirota’s Heavyweight Dub with “Scientific Strut (Live)”, and GuiDub with “ Hills of Science”. On top of these new tracks we had a brand new mix from The Groove Thief (of which we played half) titled “Stepping Between Reggae & Dub vol. V”. On top of all this we filled the show with an eclectic mix that included Secret Panels vs. The Assessor, The Clash, Pizzicato 5, A.R. Rahman, The Heliocentrics, Little Dragon, Propellerheads, HIRIE, Vieux Farka Toure, Zvuloon Dub System, and more…

Jonny Clifford, rock 'n' roll hairstylist/owner of HiFi Records, joined Spin with Cyn, sharing favorites (mostly local) in celebration of the upcoming Replacements show at Midway Stadium, and his "Can't Hardly Wait" Replacements pre-party/Slim Dunlap Benefit at Parkway Theatre 6 – midnight – featuring numerous local musicians, many who've performed with Slim Dunlap through the years. There will also be a special screening of "Color Me Obsessed" film outtakes after the acoustic set, and before the electric set.

Feature Presentation – The final show in Decoder Ring Theatre's Mark Time Show Time summer showcase series.  It's Super Pal: The Saving of the World.  A superhero shenanigan with NPR overtones.  We find out about Super Pal from interviews with his friends and colleagues, as comet Skippy approaches Big City.  It's still unclear if this is a bonafide super hero event.  Written by Jerry Stearns and Brian Price of the Great Northern Audio Theatre, for the Mark Time Radio Show.

Episode #474:  Tonight we meet a Love Goddess, take a Swingin’ Fling, enjoy a Hot Fudge Sundae, enter the Tension Zone and visit the Sugar Shack all in the course of 90 minutes.

Hey that’s a lot of action for an hour and a half!  Plus, Harry Breuer ditches his vibra-thing and picks up  the patch cords, knobs and knife switches of a Moog Synthesizer.  Plus we hear the Power Sleeze of Ronnie Laws, the weird time signatures  of Emil Richards, and the surprising use of some strange vocalese by the usually staid latin guitarist Charlie Byrd. 

BACK TO SCHOOL THURSDAY! 5 NEW TEACHERS!! With Tonia Hughes, Faith Udeh, Darnell Davis, Robert Robinson and Harold Torrence! Plus other local favorites! Lots of great music for the kingdom!
