Another gigantic week of new releases in the Chamber! Kicked off the Dub party with Thievery Corporation’s fantastic “The Temple of I & I”, followed by some classic Pablo Moses from the new collection “The Revolutionary Years 1975 1983”, and then J Boog’s new “Transition” album with the track “Raggamuffin” featuring Gramps Morgan and Buju Banton! More great new releases in the mix including: Meta & the Cornerstones’ “HIRA” album; Eljai’s single “Together Forever (Jah Mix)”; Jemere Morgan’s “Transition” album; Skip Marley’s single “Lions”; Ras Midas’ re-released “Rastaman in Exile”; deDUBros’ single “Mr. Caraibo” plus the dub “Mr. Caraidub”; The Subvivors’ “Direct to Rec.” EP; HabooDubz’ “Fried Rize vol.3” album; and the Delia Derbyshire Appreciation Society’s self-titled release. Wow! That’s a ton of new tunes… But that was just the start. More dubwise fun from Augustus Pablo, Winston Edwards, Raging Fyah, Alborosie/Black Uhuru, The Breadwinners, Sister Nancy/Seed Organization, Easy Star All Stars, Lisa Shaw, Jah Malla, 60 Channels, and still more…

We speak with Hester Young about her new novel The Shimmering Road, Book Two in the Charlie Cates trilogy. She is also the author of The Gates of Evangeline, which received much praise.

Happy Valentine's Day!!! Ronn Easton joined me today for his inaugural show as a newly certified KFAI DJ. The choices of tunes are his and he has chosen the moniker of:

"Brother Ron:The Friar of Funk-Keeper of the Groove". He can be reached at Some of the tunes came from his IPod so the information was incomplete, but for the songs that came from CD, I was able to list more complete data.
