Roots

Couple of interviews today: Jake Clemons of Springsteen’s E-Street Band (opening for Garland Jeffreys at the Cedar) called in from the road. Later on, Jonathan Richman, Tommy Larkins, and Steve McLellan stopped by for a visit. In between, lots of recorded music.

Roots, Rock & Reggae… 70’s, 80’s & 90’s flash by in the first hour… Dylan, Lou Reed, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, The Fugees, on to the track “Jump” from Kris Kross. A classic Otis Redding interpretation of “A Change is Gonna Come”, some rare Manu Dibango, and 2 tracks from the latest Alpha Blondy release. Also a preview of “Images of Africa”, an African film festival running for a week at St. Anthony Main, sponsored by the Film Society of Minneapolis-St. Paul… for details go to: www.mspfilmsociety.org

A very special show tonight…dedicated to the great DJ Cheb i Sabbah who passed away on November 6 after a long hard fight against cancer. In addition to featuring DJ Cheb, the show also included a special half-hour set of tunes from Thomas Blondet’s Rhythm & Culture label. Fitting right in was the new “The Eastern Rising” compilation on Svaha Sound, as well as the excellent new “Elephant Bass – Vol.1” compilation from Elephant Bass Labs, and the new “Poulp Up Brazil” compilation from Fresh Poulp. On top of this we had some great new tracks from HIRIE, Joe Ariwa ft. Lee “Scratch” Perry (on Steppas Records), Jennifer Paulos & Mystic Selectah, Piper St Sound & Dialect Trio, Adam Prescott & Charlie P, and Marina P. Rounding out the program with tunes from The Scientist meets Ted Sirota’s Heavyweight Dub, Scratchylus (ft.
