"Christmas In Dub" (Part 2)

DJ Baby Swiss goes solo in a seasonal stylee...as Dr. StrangeDub was out of town for Christmas. Highlights include "A Long Wintry Sigh," Likkle Mai's contribution to "Reggae with Snow Lovers," a companion volume to "Reggae with Xmas Lovers" that makes its Echo Chamber debut this week. Also turning up is Fred Schneider's B-52s side-project The Superions, twice, from "Destination... Christmas!" And look for usual suspects Jah Iriest, Peter Broggs, Joe Gibbs, The Aggrovators and Granville Williams peppering the playlist with the Yard Christmas classics we all remember. So don't let all the crap the world throws at you stop you from having some fun at its expense. As Pauline Black and The Selecter say, "Skank 'til Christmas!"
