Thanks to David Cummings, host of KFAI’s Rockin’ In Rhythm for sitting in with me this afternoon.
It was part 2 of our 6th annual “Dearly Departed” show in which we pay tribute to and play music by artists who passed away last year. Part 1 aired on David’s show on Monday (also available on the archives).
We only scratched the surface of artists who passed away last year, but we were able to get in a variety of genres ranging from rockabilly to reggae, rock and blues to twangy stuff and New Orleans.

Quite a mix of cool new sounds… Starting off with the excellent new African Head Charge “Voodoo of the Godsent” album from ON-U Sound. This was followed by new music from Dub for Light (on Dan Dada), Illuminati Congo, Keera Rootz (with Asante Amen), Eljai, Jahlix, Liquid Stranger, and more.
