This week we covered a lot of bases in the Echo Chamber: sending our heart out to Japan with music by a number of Japanese artists; getting to some women artists we missed last week; and just playing the newest stuff. Also, we debuted a new segment called “Roots of Dub”, where we go back in the roots & dub archive for a full set.
Liberty Finch hosts the show this week, while Cyn takes in the scene at SXSW. Featuring music by some of the 35 Twin Cities bands down in Austin for the festival. Former Autumn Leaves member David Ronald Beckey is guest DJ from 11am – noon. Hear him spin with Lynn Zecca at Club Jager’s St. Paddy’s Day event, and look for his new project, the Fairfield Ramblers.
“Memories of El Pocho” On this episode of RP we give our fellow Pochas Erica & Amy some felicitaciones for their engagements. (We send our condolences to their boyfriends…just kidding) Also a SPECIAL announcement regarding the future of Radio Pocho.
Musically we have some classic rolas from the 60s and a cameo by Huggie Boy (DJ Miguel Vargas thinks it’s Huggie Bear). Mellow Man Ace and Lighter Shade of Brown remind us that Pochos also rap.
And real talk…R Kelly showers us with his latest single “When A Woman Loves”.
The majestic EZ sounds of Nelson Riddle, the whistling prowess of Kelly’s Heroes, the forgotten and almost loathsome organ groans of Orville Thomas, and the sheer ridiculousness of the Mary Kaye Trio and their soundtrack to a Hula lesson. And that’s not even 1 / 7th of the playlist!
