A special show tonight as we aired part 2 of the 5th annual “Around the World in 20+ Dubs” (originally aired 4/29 on Echo Beach at WLUW-FM, Chicago). But, before the ATW 20+ special mix, we started things off with Taj Weekes & Adowa in advance of their upcoming MPLS show (6/14 – 7th St Entry) & their upcoming appearance at the Bayfront Reggae Festival (7/17 – Duluth,MN). Followed up with Nkulee Dube, who will also be at the Bayfront Fest (7/16) from her new album “My Way”.

DJ Baby Swiss entered hour 3 smelling like a rose… in addition to 2 spritzes of Perfume, the ol’ time travel machine named After Hours took us back to ‘Round Midnight, Omars Attacked, firing strawberries from a white black hole in outer space, a Mouse unwrapped a snap bar somewhere on Mars, Yello dubbed in a tub, and Hugh Cornwell sprung a gingerbread girl from prison and spirited her away to an opium den… all in the Echo Chamber.
