11/12/2008 Echo Chamber

Another typical Echo Chamber mix of roots, dub, and eclectic fun. Brand new dub from Volfoniq; Eating Betty’s excellent new Every Spoil a Dub; the latest roots classic Jah Is Real from Burning Spear; the fine new Nostradamus album from Winston McAnuff; a new Lucky Dube restrospective (on Ryko); and the cool
roots vibe of See-I’s Mean Joe Green.

11/11/2008 Pam Without Boundaries

New local music this morning from Nikki the RueMates, who had a CD release party that John Wills also played—which he is why he got up early with us on November 4th (thanks, John!). Nikki the RueMates also played the KFAI 30th Anniversary party at the Eagles on November 8th, and it was packed! It was so fun to see old KFAI friends and meet new KFAI folks, too. Thank you to everyone who was able to come down and celebrate the little station that could. Check out the playlist for more new curiosities, such as The Postmarks, Lenka, and Jenny Lewis.

11/9/2008 Century Song

Today we began with music of the Romanian Gypsies of Valachie (Ocora). That was followed by in studio guest, Donal Maguire. We heard a couple of Irish songs live, and a couple from Donal’s recording dedicated to Michael Davitt (Rossendale Records).

During the second hour we heard a poetic song from Viet Nam by Tran Van Khe (Ocora), that was followed instrumental music from Malaysia (Music Valley), and then music from Mali’s master of the Kora, Toumani Diabate (Hannibal). The show was finished of with special in studio guest, cellist, Kirsten Whitson. Where heard a two live tracks. One from Cambodian composer, Ung, and then Appalachian Waltz by Mark O’Connor.
