Tons of new stuff – by the likes of Bandulu Dub, Eric Blowtorch & Prince Jazzbo, Peak, Four Tet, and Basque Dub Foundation; an eclectic “Happy Birthday” mix for my daughter; and a new mix from Liquid Stranger (courtesy of our pal Terry C. of “Echo Beach” at WLUW-FM).
Musica con Conciencia the theme takes us into the music that inspires action or at the very least makes us think. From musica de la revolucion Salvadoreña to salsa with socially conscious lyrics. We spend quite a bit of time in the 1970s, a hotbed of political and musical movement. Check it out.
This was a fun morning, in which I lost complete control of the last hour. Gabe Barnett and the Front Porch Sitters were booked for an 11am interview. When he walked in the studio, Gabe said, I have suprises! And what he brought was a bunch of local musicians, Natalie from Sheridan Arts School, Richard Amos from St. Stephens Human Services, and two studios full of enthusiasm. It was a blast, however close to herding cats it may have been! I look forward to the next project from the Front Porch Sitters.
