Another great Echo Chamber program with DJ Baby Swiss at the controls…and Dr. StrangeDub supplying a bit of music. Excellent new releases from Alpha Steppa (the double album “Rooted & Grounded”), Tribal Realities, our good friend The Technician (Trevor McKenzie), Jemere Morgan, The Cactus Channel, and King Mas (ft. Anto Neosoul). Swiss filled the show with so many great artists including Blondub Sexy Sound, Weather Report, The Aggrovators, Loudspeaker Speaker Meets Clearly Human, Capital Letters, Mad Professor & Prince Fatty, Ossie Hibbert, Ranking Dread & Roots Radics (ft. Jackie Mittoo), Little Tempo, The Clash, The Upsetters, 60 Channels, and more. Finally, another highlight of the show was Dr. StrangeDub’s interview of Jemere Morgan, recorded backstage after the Catch a Fire Tour show at the Cabooze back in September.
We speak with Karin Slaughter about her new psychological thriller Pretty Girls. She is the author of many books, including the Grant County series (featuring Blindsided), the Will Trent/Atlanta series (featuring Fractured) and the Georgia series that includes Undone.
