Seeing another year out in rub-a-dub stylee… From Ghetto Priest’s Auld Lang Syne/Slave’s Lament versions (from the rare ON-U Sound single), to the brand new Inna Steppa Dub from Improvisators meet Iration Steppas, to the modern-meets-ancient sounds of Jah Wobble’s new Chinese Dub album (on 30 Hertz), it was quite an irie party.

I found 55 records in 2008 that I thought were worth noting. 55 records—not just one or two songs, but the whole record was worthwhile. I got to 30 of them on this show, including some requests like Blitzen Trapper (thanks, Dan Haugen!). Then I tuned in to Dart Gun Radio later that night, and heard Abbi proclaim there weren’t many records that came out in ’08 that were worth anything, but she was going to dig up a couple. I had to smile. Check out the playlist and see if the ones you thought mattered in ’08 turned up this Tuesday morning.
