9/3/2008 Scandinavian Cultural Hour

Tonights music from a good Swedish friend….Mats Eden. Beginning with Groupa in the late 70’s-early 80’s up to the present, Mats musical career has expanded to include teaching, composing (both folk-based world music and classical), touring and recording. He has spent much time at the feet of older Swedish master musicians learning their craft in the time-honored way. Among others he has learned from Oscar Andersson, Mångskog, Värmalnd, and Pekkos-Gustav, Binsjö, Dalarna. Mats has also studied much in Norway. He has appeared in the Twin Cities at Nordic Fest and should be coming again this year.

9/3/2008 Echo Chamber

Tonight the doctors of dub returned to the twangy, camp sounds of the Dub Club Tiki Bar…as we pulled out all the fresh leftovers for part 2 of our Echo Beach end-of-summer special. More surf guitar, funky organs, James Bond, Ken Nordine, and Brazilian beats too. Ahh…but this week we mashed in a lot more dub as well…including part 1 of a fantastic mix from Tokyo Tower (put together specifically for our pal Terry C. at Echo Beach on WLUW).
