What a full program tonight: tons of new releases, a few classics, a number of eclectic Swiss picks, and part 1 of a special mix from Manwel T (originally done for Terry C’s Echo Beach on WLUW-FM). The big new releases included: the excellent “Red Shadow Landing” album from All India Radio; Steve Steppa’s fine new rootical album “Zion Door”; U-Roy’s sweet new “Pray Fi Di People” album; Beats Antique’s new “Contraption – Vol.2” EP; the cool “Synchronicity Dub” single from Wavewhore & ACEtone Studios; and Fu-Step’s dubwise “No More Vibes to Waste” album.

We speak with Moises Velasquez-Manoff about his new book An Epidemic of Absence: A New Way of Understanding Allergies and Autoimmune Diseases. He has covered science and the environment for The Christian Science Monitor and his work has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, and The Indianapolis Star, among other publications.
