A steamy summer night…in a haze of ganja smoke…with tons of new tunes. Opened the show with the very cool Prince Fatty presents Hollie Cook In Dub album from Mr. Bongo Records. Another highlighted new release tonight was the “Guidency” single (featuring Omar Perry) on the “Don’t Let Them” riddim from the Mungo’s Hi-Fi (Scotch Bonnet Records). Also making its debut was the Delayrium album from Jah Acid Dub, as did the “Ya Sta Qi” EP from Superpendejos (on Urban World). And then there was the ganja smoke…from this week’s summer mix: an excerpt from Tom Chasteen’s Magic Marijuana Megamix. Selector Tom Chasteen presents an all ganja tune, all vinyl mix in honor of 4:20 (2011). Also new in the mix: a brand new single from Jimmy Cliff, from his upcoming “Rebirth” release; a new unreleased track from Zion Dirty Sound; Eljai’s hot “Frenemy” single; a new version of the Mutant Frogs “Vibe Steady” track; and a new dubplate from Alpha Steppa.
From the Sci-Fi Radio series we bring a Ray Bradbury short story, Frost and Fire, in which a people try to reach the distant spaceship that can take them to safety. Though the distance to it isn’t great, there is only a short time in which to cross the expanse because the days are deathly hot and the nights are killing cold, and the only other safe place is in their caves.
