This program presents a survey of the Latin American “Nueva canción” movement with some of its best known pioneers. The literature segment is dedicated to Pablo Neruda, from Chile.

A very big show tonight for at least three reasons: tonight was our annual “Lunar Lunatics” special commemorating the first moon landing on July 20, 1969; it was my wife Kerry-Ann’s birthday; and we had a bunch of excellent new releases. Starting things off was the new “Pull It Up!” album from those guys at the Elephant House, the Overproof Soundsystem. Following this was the new “A New Day” album from Jah Marnyah; the cool “Su Bandu” album from Ratapignata and new releases from Dr. Mooch, Ras Sis Highness, Najavibes, Dub Rifles, and Bunny Rugs (the single “Land We Love: Jamaica”). Our “Lunar Lunatics” included such gems as “One Giant Dub for Mankind” (Tassilli Players), “A Bunch Of Guys About to Turn Blue” (Drain), “Apollo 11” (Mutant Hi-Fi), “Fly Me to the Moon” (Frank Sinatra), “Walking on the Moon/Walking on the Dub” (Dubxanne), “Mars Invasion” (Soulsteppers), “Star Dub” (Dr. Echo), and “Destination Moon” (Channel U).
