Tonight we launched a special entitled Lunar Lunacy: One Giant Leap for Dubkind commemoratrating the 40th anniversary of 1st moon landing. From the Dub Side of the Moon album, to three versions of Walking on the Moon we travelled to the outer reaches of the known universe…in search of dub and other space funk.
Waiting for a Window, a nautical fantasy, winner of the Ogle Award for best fantasy audio production of the year. The Rocketmen, Part 1 – What if someone got to the moon before NASA did. Well, Howard Hughes had the know-how, and the Mob had something to invest.
Another summer show full of new music…and a couple of surprises. Starting off the program was the excellent new Kukan Dub Lagan:http://www.kukantaiko.com/ New Life New Vision. Other new items included Dawa Hi-Fi’s latest (Antik Things) and the very cool From the Oriental School of Dub from Fedayi Pacha:http://fedayipacha.net/ (on Hammerbass). One (by request) surprise: legendary folkie Arlo Guthrie in dub! And to celebrate the new Kukan release, our summer mix was Kukan’s Dub Journey.
