New music that is just right for the season and what's to come by local quartet Tjärnblom, originals and covers by the late great Fats Domino, and a 50th anniversary salute to my sister Rosemary Earth Fubar Teas and her husband, Coach Tim Teas. 

Greg and Dylan Koch stopped by the show with a new cd in hand. New music by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats (live), Downchild, Langhorne Slim, Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters.  Also played Fats Domino, Tom Petty, Clifton Chenier, Jr. Kimbrough, Ben Vaughn, Tom Russell, Billy Lee Riley, Omar Dykes, and more.  Crank up the ol' speakers for this one my dear.

Opening today's program in St. Paul with long-time music professor at Macalester, Sowah Mensah's cd, "Gourds – NTOA".  Then another artist with MN roots, Lila Downs from Oaxaca.  Then music from Haitian ensemble, Boukman Eksperyans.  More diversity as African bandleaders, Ricardo Lemvo (Congo) & Mashek Fashek (from West Africa) are followed by a Trin-bagonian Kaiso star – Black Stalin – doing his own truth-telling.  Back home to 2 tracks from MN-born Bob Dylan and a relatively unknown song by Iowan Greg Brown.

All the ghouls, goblins, duppys, and dreads gathered for the annual “Echo Chamber of Horrors” special! With layers of special effects & soundbytes, including the movies “Dracula”, “Frankenstein”, “The Exorcist”, and more!
