Love + Radio brings us the story of a horrible accident and a complicated friendship.

A bunch of great new release tonight…and an eclectic mix all-around. Brand new releases included: Ras Takura’s long-awaited “Food War” album; the excellent “United as One” dub compilation from the Dubophonic & Dubkey labels; 10Ft. Ganja Plant’s “10 Deadly Shots vol. 3”; Messian Dread’s righteous new dub collection “Messian Dread presents Heavyweight Dubwise Selection Without Objection”; J Boog’s nice “Live Up!” EP; Toian’s “Rude Boys” single; the “Wolf” EP from *Capital Letters; and the rootical “Evolution’ album from I&I Livity. More new sounds from The New Mastersounds, Electric Boogie, the Feedel Band, Meklit (Dub Colossus mix), Fortunate Youth, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Chief Rockas Collective & Dark Angel, and King Mas. On top of all this, some great tunes from Emel Mathlouthi, We, The Breadwinners, Dubmatix, The Clash, Jackie Mittoo, The Slits, Kalya Scintilla, and more…

We speak with Marlon James about his new novel A Brief History of Seven Killings. He is also the author of The Book of Night Women, which won a Minnesota Book Award, and John Crow's Devil.

We also talk with our very own Lynette Reini-Grandell about her new poetry collection Approaching the Gate. Her poem "Radio Girls" was nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and she has received grants from the Finlandia Foundation and the Minnesota State Arts Board.
