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!
