Friday July 31st, 2020 with Trevor Walker
Here come the dog days...

Here we are rolling into the "dog days" of August. We made it half way through the year! Still getting used to the extra hour and producing the show offsite which can be a little challenging at times. Very happy to be back on FM broadcasting locally and wanted to thank everyone who has been taking the time to listen to the show on demand. I hope you've all been enjoying the extra hour. On this week's show we take a ride through some reggae donuts from the late '60's through 2010's to kick things off. Followed by some jazzy vibes for the second half of the first hour. Then we'll take it up a notch for the second half with some early breakbeat, gypsy jazz, Guinean funk and a few disco boogie grooves to wrap things up. There's even a little bit of extra content on demand for those who have the time.
