Kicked things off tonight with the excellent new “Black Star Line” album from Sangue Bom out of Paris (mixed by Mad Professor & Joe Ariwa). Followed this with two fine new releases on the Scoops label – from Vibronics and Kyle Sicarius. Also in the first set was the very cool track “Ganja Tea” from the artist Chatta from Canada. More new items from Jah Red Lion & Dub Terminator, Big Shiny, Rod Anton & the Ligerians, King David, Fu-Steps, and the new Pressure Sounds release “The Sound Doctor” — Lee Perry produced tracks from the archive. And, celebrating the reelection of Barack Obama as President, we loudly played Mista Majah P’s “Four More Years” track!

Today’s show was dedicated to George “Mojo” Buford who passed away in October 2011. November 10th would have been his 83rd birthday. Blues guitarist Brian Dyke stopped by the studio today with unreleased tunes by Mojo from several gigs over a period of 10+ years. Some of today’s show featured label-released cuts, but a lot of the music we played today came from Brian’s private home-grown stash of unreleased vintage tunes by Mojo Buford, Blues Deluxe and Rockin’ Daddy & The Rough Cuts.

Requests, new music & a live conversation with Mary Black!
