Out of town for a break — Tony Paul, of Shake And Bake step up to fill the slot – the last episode of 2015.  Thanks Tony !

What fun winding up 2015 and getting ready for a new year in the Echo Chamber! Tons of great dub & reggae as usual, and some holiday tunes for the year-end party — including 3 versions of “Auld Lang Syne”. As has been our custom over the last few years, we kicked off the program with Ghetto Priest’s excellent “Auld Lang Syne/Slave’s Lament” version of the classic song. Other fine holiday material from the likes of Redtenbacher’s Funkestra, J Boogie’s Dubtronic Science, Colossus, Jacob Miller & Ray I, Yellowman, and Tsuyoshi Kawakami. But tonight’s show wasn’t all about looking back, as we aired brand new tunes from DJ Vadim & Sena, Misa West, Alpha Steppa, Dos Pesos, HabooDubee (aka Polaak), Chyna Nicole, and Groove Armada. In the second half of the show, DJ Baby Swiss marked the departure of The Specials’ powerhouse drummer John Bradbury for that great “Ghost Town” in the sky, kicking off a wide-ranging set rncompassing the circa-2015 and red-hot Selecter (“Breakdown”), brand-spankin’ new Pannonia Allstars (“Star Wars Imperial Reggae”), classic old Bad Manners (“Echo Gone Wrong”) and of course The Upsetters’ “Na Na Hey Hey” to close things out.
