Tonight was the annual Christmas In Dub special... What a fun mix of yuletide reggae, dub, club, lounge, and world exotica we put together this year. A bunch of reggae Christmas tunes from the likes of Yellowman, Toots & the Maytals, Horace Andy, Bob Marley & the Wailers, The Drastics, L&S symfHoney, McPullish, Jacob Miller & Ray I, Roy Richards, Jah Iriest Artists, Likkle Mai, Abassi All Stars, Peter Broggs, Keith Poppin, and others. Plus yuletide gems from our Dub Club Tiki Lounge, including the artists Pink Martini, 11 Acorn Lane, J.Boogie, The Dub Three-o, Lee McClure, Macklin Underdown, The Blue Hawaiians, The Puppini Sisters, Vince Guaraldi (remixed...and straight-up), Fort Knox Allstars, Eban Schletter, Johnny Mercer, Hal Blaine, Joe Loco Quintet, Lionel Hampton, and more. Also tonight, a bit of Hanukkhah (from Matisyahu) and Kwanzaa (from Billy Paul Williams). Finally we tossed in a bit of Christmas comedy from Sten Freberg, Yogi Yorgesson, and Thurl Ravenscroft (singing "You're A Mean One Mr. Grinch"). What a fun, dubwise holiday party it was!
