Once again the freshest new dub & roots make their way to the Echo Chamber.. Starting things off with the excellent “Feeding My Faith” album from Webcam Hi-Fi (on Tube Dub Sound). Followed this up with 3 more choice new releases: Groundation’s “Building an Ark” (on VP); Clinton Fearon’s 2nd full acoutic album Heart and Soul (on his own Boogie Brown Productions); and the heavy new “Highest Grade” single from Alpha Steppa (on the Steppas label). Also new tonight: the “Mindset (Reloaded)” EP from Lucky Dub & Dubmatix, as well as tracks from Negritage, Dub Terminator & Reality Chant, Mutant Frogs, Prince Fatty meets the Mutant Hi-Fi, and Creation Rockers

We talk with novelist Richard Ford about his newest book, Canada.  Richard Ford is the author of the Bascombe novels, which include The Sportswriter and its sequels, Independence Day—the first novel to win the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award—and The Lay of the Land, as well as the short story collections Rock Springs and A Multitude of Sins, which contain many widely anthologized stories.

Joined today by Marni Hochenberg who brough her bag of New Orleans music to talk about the French Quarter Festival in Louisiana that often gets overlooked by folks looking to have a good time.
