Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind… And so we said goodbye to 2010 in dubwise style in the Echo Chamber. A special Dr. StrangeDub Eternity Dub on-the-fly mix of Auld Lang Syne got the party started. The passing of time, and the flipping of a new page, was also observed in the Time sequence which included: Serious Times (Horace Andy), Time, Time (Reggae Bubblers), Time Bomb Dub (System Error Michael Rose), and Time (Easy Star All Stars/Groove Corp.). Brand new tracks to greet the new year from The Manor ft. Debstar, Arrogalla, Naturaliss, Vince Black, Purdy, and Kaya Project/Gaudi. Happy New Year from the Echo Chamber…
Tonight, we will play the last two installments of Christmas in France, brief recordings of music and narration telling of celebrations in Alsace, in the east, and in Provence, in the south. Then, there will be three songs for children, some golden oldies, and finally new music from France and French-speaking countries.
In this show, we talk with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jane Smiley, author of A Thousand Acres, Private Life, and also a new series of books for young readers, the latest of which is A Good Horse.
We also talk with writer, consultant, and literary agent Scott Edelstein. Scott Edelstein is the author of many books and articles, and his newest book, Sex and the Spiritual Teacher, will be published in March 2011 by Wisdom Publications.
