Melting Pot

Back to business as usual this Sunday, after a successful fundraiser. Many thanks to everyone who supported Melting Pot and KPFK, and keep safe from corporate meddling. Yesterday’s show features the mad mix of styles you’d expect from Melting Pot. We got a bevy of new tunes from the likes of the Strange Boys, Terror Danjah, Phonte, Real Estate, Jose James and Atlas Sound, as well as some recently reissued gems from the Lijadu Sisters, El Rego, the Southland Singers, Hemany Bhole and The Matta Baby. The belle of the ball is the interview and performance from San Francisco’s The Sandwitches that starts off the second hour (separate post coming up). We pre-recorded this one a little over a week ago, but it’s well worth the wait to hear their special and haunting (especially on the last couple of tracks) blend of styles. A band definitely to watch in the next couple of years. Next week we have another recorded session (a preview of which you get in this show, their smashing version of “No No No”) that I’ve been dying to bring to you from the Boogaloo Assassins! Until then enjoy this week’s show.
