Tonight’s program features a super set of Henry Mancini, a salute to Tom Jones, songs about Nightmares, songs about Pineapple Pirates, a song about a burnt hand – I kid you not – and something from an album with the craziest title of all time: “Make Mine Cha Cha Cha… Mambo for Me, Oooh! That Merengue…!
Kicked things off tonight with the excellent new “Black Star Line” album from Sangue Bom out of Paris (mixed by Mad Professor & Joe Ariwa). Followed this with two fine new releases on the Scoops label – from Vibronics and Kyle Sicarius. Also in the first set was the very cool track “Ganja Tea” from the artist Chatta from Canada. More new items from Jah Red Lion & Dub Terminator, Big Shiny, Rod Anton & the Ligerians, King David, Fu-Steps, and the new Pressure Sounds release “The Sound Doctor” — Lee Perry produced tracks from the archive. And, celebrating the reelection of Barack Obama as President, we loudly played Mista Majah P’s “Four More Years” track!
Honey West: Murder on Mars – Tonight we begin the story of detective Honey West investigating the death of a B-movie actress as she goes undercover on the movie set.
And If You’re Glad, I’ll Be Frank – a Tom Stoppard play from the BBC.
