After 2 weeks of floating around in space, the good dub doctors came back down to the ground…in fact, below the ground…to the Roots. A very rootical show, with new releases from Eating Betty, the Skatalites (rerelease of a 1983 live recording), Bombay Dub Orchestra, and more… Also tonight, a special Happy Happy Mix from Dr. StrangeDub.
New music from The Pines (from Tremolo out August 11th), The Dead Weather, and a little review of 10KLF highlights with Ozomatli and local group, A Night in the Box. A Night in the Box will play the gospel brunch at the 331 Club Sunday, August 9th.
Christina Selander-Bouzouina, executive directrice of the Alliance Francaise, is a special guest on tonight’s program. She brings her favorite French songs to share with listeners and talks of the many opportunities for learning and having fun with the activities at the Alliance.
During the first hour we listened to Detetektivebyran, one of the surprise groups from the 2008 Nordic Roots Festival at the Cedar Cultural Center. Recording engineer was Chris Dronen, edited by Dan Rein.
