Tonight, as part of KFAI's spring pledge drive, the Echo Chamber presented our annual "Free the Marijuana" special. It was a crazy kind of night....in a cloud of ganja smoke... Alright, OK...so there wasn't really any ganja smoke in the studio (too bad), just plenty of ganja-inspired reggae and dub, with some great soundbytes from "Reefer Madness".  A special part of tonight's program was the The Groove Thief's "Stepping Between Reggae and Dub Vol. 4" ganja-filled mix (which we played most of).
