An unbelievable eclectic mix on tonight’s program… But, first up was the incredible new release Re-Record Not Fade Away from Yesking. What a slinky, chilled musical trip with elements of trip-hop and hip-hop, and a solid dubwise foundation. On top of this we dropped the dub bomb that is Alpha Steppa + Alpha & Omega — with the excellent The Unrelenting Force of Dub Dynasty. And up 3rd on the bill, the brand new John Brown’s Body album Kings and Queens (on Easy Star). Wow…and then more great new sounds from Yabass Yaba Radics, The Dubb Style, Addis Pablo & Suns of Dub, DubRaJah, Version Xcursion, Fanfara meets Transglobal Underground, Hotdrop, Caro Emerald, Banco de Gaia, Mutant Frogs, and Toots & the Maytals (from the “Ska Never Grow Old” EP). Also, on the same night I had the pleasure of meeting (and interviewing) Mutabaruka, we played the powerful poem “Columbus Ghost”.

Tuesday, April 9th. We did something a little different this week. We discussed our writing among ourselves. Steve McEllistrem, Lynette Reini-Grandell, Antonia Felix, G.E. Patterson and Kristin Johnson all read something of their own or something they really liked and we chatted about  what we're currently writing and why Write On! Radio is so important to us that we volunteer our time and money.

Pledge Drive show…play list not available.

Celebrating Ellen Stanley’s 10th anniversary at KFAI with most requested music from the last decade & other pledge drive fun!
