A heavy dubwise show tonight…kicked off with Darryl Jenifer (of Bad Brains) excellent new “In Search of Black Judas” (on ROIR). Following this up was the fine new “System Shakedown” from Dubmatix, plus new tracks from Uffe, Cherine Anderson, Taj Weekes & Adowa, and Eljai.
It’s Pledge Drive! Tonight’s all-music program includes all the great singers from the past plus current music from France and French-speaking countries. Listeners pledge by telephone or on-line to support Bonjour Minnesota and all of the great programs on KFAI.
On Tuesday, September 28th, it’s our first fall Pledge Drive show, and celebrating all things KFAI with us will be children’s book author Lynne Jonell, whose book, The Secret of Zoom (a Junior Library Guild Selection), was recently recommended to President Barack Obama by Prairie Lights Bookstore (and yes, he purchased it too!). Her first novel, Emmy the Incredible Shrinking Rat, won the Minnesota Book Award. Her newest book is Hamster Magic.
Also on this week’s show Leonard Borman talks about Our Jewish Robot Future, A Novel about the Garden of Eden and the Cyborgian Transformation of the Human Race.
