Kicking things off tonight with the excellent new “Rise Up and Love” album from Doktor Lond & Agarfa (Roots Lab Int’l/Springline). This was followed by the new dub-heavy “In the Chamber of Dub” album from General Levy & Joe Ariwa (son of Mad Professor). On top of this we had new tunes from The Dynamics, Tony Dubshot, Dub Colossus, Dr. Echo, Madness, Jah Marnyah, and Full Dub. Then, in the middle of the program, we aired part 1 of Dr. StrangeDub’s “In the garden of Dub” mix. This dubwise mix celebrates the pleasures of gardening, the roots of life, and the seasons of nature.
