Another crazy mix of music tonight – including a bunch of new tunes and some items intended for last week’s Echo Beach special, like Senor Coconut, Tito Puente, Paul Haig, Cal Tjader, and 11 Acorn Lane. New releases include Vincenzo Cipollone’s excellent Far West; the heavy new Virtual Dub 4 compilation from Manwel T and friends; and the strange but good Vampire Slayer album from Denja (on Atlanta Street). More new material in the mix from B.Riddim, Zion Train, Goapele (with the sexy Play single), Digitaldubs, Vieux Farka Toure, and Ras Amerlock.
Day 1 of the fall 2011 pledge drive kicked off with a bang! Ken was away attending a wedding. However, David Cummings (Rockin’ In Rhythm-Mondays 2-4PM) led the show and pulled together a real powerhouse team of talented personalities for this week’s show. On hand were Pete Lee (Bop Street-Mondays 4-6PM), Ron Gerber (Crap From The Past-Fridays 10:30PM-midnight), Dick Himes (country music historian, contributor, KFAI volunteer and occasional GnC host), and Mick Novak (Louisiana Rhythms-Fridays 2-4PM).
