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.

Pan-African Hour: Zamrock! (March 23, 2011)

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. Also, we got asked to an extra long show, and so we threw on a few extra, non-Afro tracks at the end here.

Rikki Iilonga and Muis-o-Tunya - The Queen Blues
Rikki Iilonga and Muis-o-Tunya - Chalo Chawama
