A New Year Auld Lang Syne – cajun style is followed by Pakistani Qawwali a survey of Kenyan styles as the two countries unfortunately make their way to the headlines. Today’s show ends in a rub-a-dub style.
The inaugural show of 2008…and what a way to begin the year. The doctor started things off with Ghetto Priest’s Auld Lang Syne/Slave’s Lament versions, and kept things heavily chilled with Likkle Mai, Dust Galaxy, U-Niko, Cocoa Tea, Royal African Soldiers, King Tubby, Electrocutango, Mutant Frogs, and many more… DJ Baby Swiss capped off the New Year’s celebration by looking back on some of his faves from ’07
This first 2008 edition of the show we heard a few of the 2007 records that music writers put on their tops lists, such as The Pines, Iron and Wine, Cloud Cult and Wilco; we also heard Dana Leong, an artist out of New York who is definitely one to watch for music heads in ’08.
