Karl starts off with Zydeco from the master – Boozoo Chavis. A bit more from Jude Taylor and Geno and then on to the Racines a a bunch of Cajun. A little Swamp Pop, more Zydeco and finish up with some old Cajun.
New music included Eilen Jewell, Jake Manders, Candye Kane, and Grayson Capps.
Thanks to Jake Manders and Alyssa Bicking for stopping in to the show today. They performed a few songs live in-studio plus we played a couple of tracks from Jake’s new CD. By the way, Freewheelin’ First Friday will be presenting Jake’s CD Release Party at the 331 Club this Friday night at 10:00.
Also, guitar great Eric Johnson called in for a brief phone interview. He’s in town Thursday night at the Varsity Theatre.

As usual, something for everybody in the Echo Chamber…starting off with a cool new dub from Ital Roots Players, followed by new music from The Angel, I.vette, Process Rebel, Juakali, Copia Doble Systema, Mahom, and Easy Star All Stars. As part of our summer mix series we included an excellent mix from Saetchmo called Short Trip Into Space and Back.
When Swiss took over in the 4:00 hour, listeners found out why It’s Fun To Listen To YMCK…and their cheesy-cute 8-bit video arcade chiptune/dancehall (“chiphall?”) riddim “Collect The Wind – Happy End”, kicking off a set that reintroduces the world to Grace Jones via her new “Hurricane/Hurricane Dub” dubble CD. Also in the set, new artist (to us) Diva, along with Rico, Tsuyoshi Kawakami and Dub Syndicate.
