Pan-African Hour: Star Trek (April 20 and 27, 2011)

The end of an era! As Sassafrass prepares to leave to Alberta we have two radio shows left prior to his departure, so we execute a long spoken of desire to do a live radio play spoofing Star Trek! Enlisting Alberta Bertha from Eat My Country to help with the voice acting, we cobbled together two episodes worth of script and music...almost. Both scripts actually fell short of filling up a full hour, so we improvise at the end of both episodes. Sasparilla does both soundeffects and voice acting, leading to a few awkward pauses here and there. Overall, not the most polished radio play you'll ever here, but definitely funny in it's amateur production and ridiculous plot.

Pan-African Hour: New African Music (April 13, 2011)

On this episode we decided to showcase some of the new music that is coming out of Africa, since we tend to play a lot of old stuff, though we also play some new compilations of old music. Most exciting here is the reflection of a new market for African music that has opened up in the West. The original World Music market was made up of baby boomers that got into modified African music with cheesy pop production. But record labels like Strut, Soundway, Souljazz, Analog Africa and others are showing the existence of a new market that is more into African music from the 60s and 70s, music by Africans for Africans, without any of that cross-over production style! And this has allowed old acts such as Ebo Taylor and T.P. Orchester Poly-Rythmo to come back and access the international market for the first time. This episode showcases these new efforts from old legends, and some new comps from record labels that have helped create the new market. Also featured is Afrocubism, who reflect the late 90s trend to move away from pop production and go toward a more acoustic sound, a trend that appeals to the both the old and new markets.
Jovens Do Prenda - Farra Na Madrugada
Orchestre Polyrhythmo de cotonou - Pardon
Ebo Taylor - Mizin
Afrocubism - Al Vaiven De Mi Carreta
Rosendo Y Su Banda - Me Voy Pa'La Costa

Pan-African Hour: Desert Guitars (April 6th, 2011)

Sublime Frequencies has been releasing some killer albums of electric guitar music from groups based out of the Saharan desert, such as Group Inerane, Group Doueh and Group Bombino. It all started when Tinariwen, a group of Tuareg musicians, decided to go electric guitar styles instead of their regular acoustic instruments. Since then a distinctive style of Saharan rock has been developing, which was also party anticipated by the work of Ali Farka Toure. Also included here is Moudou Ould Mattala, whose style is closely related. This is one of the most interesting developments that we know of coming from Africa these days and is a must check out. The style is an incredible blend of West Africa meets North Africa.
Group Doueh - Cheyla Ya Haiuune
Moudou Ould Mattalla - Improvisation
Ali Farka Toure - Inchana Massina
Tinariwen - Chatma
Group Inerane - Kuni Majagani

HHSOPB: Hip Hop Roulette

Originally aired Sept.26th 2010 in Edmonton, AB on CJSR 88.5fm in Edmonton. It's Hip Hop Roulette, meaning Ranking B made a playlist containing at least one artist from every country ever played on HHSOPB, put it on random, and left it to play. Might seem like a lame concept, but the music in this show sure speaks to the hypeness that is the worldwide Hip Hop movement.

Check these 70s rock bands from Zambia rippin' it to shreds! Rock and roll never caught on in Africa as much as other US styles like soul, funk and hip-hop, but in Zambia there seems to have been a scene for it. I especially like the Witch.

Pan-African Hour: Dub (March 16, 2011)

Dub is a style that developed in early 70s Jamaica. Using the master recordings of reggae songs (which could be separated into separate tracks), Dub artists would create a new song by playing with the sequencing of tracks and adding effects to tracks. In essence, Dub was the first example of re-mixing, or at least the earliest example that we know of. It certainly is one of the first examples of being creative with recorded music in popular music, though avant-garde composers had done this for a while. Dub is extremely relaxed and tripped out, and you may want to smoke a big spliff before throwing on this episode!

Pan-African Hour: African Music from the 1920s to the 1950s) (Feb 16, 2011)

The African music industry was somewhat limited prior to countries achieving independence from colonial rule, with many groups having to go abroad to record. Thus the 60s were the first really big decade for African groups/artists recording, and prior to that recordings are more rare, though it depends on which part of Africa your considering (lots more recordings from South Africa, for instance). This episode of the Pan-African Hour explores those earlier years, and so the PAH boys thought it fitting to let their grandpas host the show, live from their rocking chairs at teatime!
