This program celebrates the Thanksgiving Holiday with music composed in celebration of food. It also includes a segment dedicated to the great Cuban “sonero” Benny Moré. The literature segment presents two Colombian authors: Laura Restrepo and León de Grieff.
A ton of new music, some old favorites, and even an airing of Happy Birth Dub for Dr. StrangeDub. Brand new remixes of Dubmatix’s:http://www.dubmatix.com System Shakedown album on the new Clash of the Titans; some cool new Slovenian dub from the Fraj Ton Dub compilation; and new music from Dub Colossus, Babilonci (the very nice These Boots cover), Roots Nation, Jesse Royal, Bandulu Dub & Haji Mike, Masia One & Sabotawj (the very cool Irie), Natty Dave, and our own Mutant Frogs.
No calendar, no interviews, no talk – just music to make you shake your culo (type that word onto the Babel Fish link below for an accurate translation) while you cook up that Thanksgiving feast.
Chef Pierre Rabbia of the Cordon Bleu culinary school is our guest this evening. He will speak of French food and preparation. He will also speak of the new restaurant, Technique, which opened this fall to the public. Listeners can eat either lunch or dinner of excellent quality prepared by the students in the French way.
From 9:00-10:00 PM, the program continues with all music in an eclectic French mix.
