This Island Earth
Sunday June 17th, 2018 with Rob Bitschofsky
Music for a "heat event".

It's 30° outside of the very cool, very dark superterranean CKCU world headquarters. The government has declared it a "heat event". I've curated a fine mix of the old and new as the soundtrack for it. Dig in, earthlings down below!

LOVE the new Invisible System. It is indeed aka Dan Harper, UK / African producer and sound maker, in combo with a collection of additional musicians. His/their Ethiopian - flavoured music is also KILLER.

Hey PB! If the Ethiopian stuff is as good as the Mali thing on this new record, I gotta check it out. Very tasty indeed.

The new Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids / An Angel Fell is also a TOTAL KNOCK-OUT, top to bottom! Got to put the whole darned thing on the air about a month ago. Listeners can check that out here: https://cod.ckcufm.com/programs/32/37662.html

Yup, I'm digging this one a great deal also. Just a couple of cuts from it on today's show, but the whole thing is certainly worth a spin!

Great show today dude. Especially enjoyed the retro, mis-spent youth. "Music to hide from heat to." ;^)

Your radio program has been an excellent companion to an afternoon car ride. Huzzah good sir!
