Roots

  Today we were pleased to inaugurate a new (and experimental) feature on "Good and Country"—"Co-Host For A Day". Our special guest was Bruce Krohn. He is with a local band (The Dakota Ramblers) and shared music and stories with us. It was a real pleasure to have him as a guest. If YOU would like to be a co-host for a day, no radio experience is necessary. You can bring country music if you wish, or you can just come in, hang out and help me spin and announce the tunes.

Rob Chapman called in to discuss the Rolling Stones movie festival that took place this weekend. Bernie Larsen & Erik Koskinen stopped by and performed live in-studio. New music by Rosie Flores, Miss Tess, Neil Young & Crazy Horse. Plus Stones, Doug Sahm, Zappa, David Lindley, John Fullbright, Eilen Jewell, Joe Ely…. test

Opening with a reggae-flava set… adding more tastes of Lila Downs, performing this evening at the Ordway in St. Paul. Touching down in Brazil and reviewing African songbird, Dobet Gnahore’ in review of her visit this week at the Dakota.

Kicking things off tonight with McPullish’s excellent new “Black Metal White Reggae” album (Charlie’s Records); followed by the latest Vibronics & friends on SCOOPs Records; King Django & Victor Rice with “Dub Discoveries From Version City” (celebrating 20 years of Stubborn Records); and the “Lost Album” unearthed and released by Groove Corp. Also tonight we did an Easy Star All Stars set to celebrate their “Thrillah” tour (and my trip to Chicago to see them). More great new stuff from Tafari, Beats Antique, Kukan dub Lagan, The Dynamics, The Dubsmith, Victoria Moralez, Damo Naimad, The Vibraphonic Orchestra, and Dada Afrik & Calcia.
