This week’s show featured a musical set highlighting artists performing at the North West World Reggae Festival and ticket giveaways to this weekend’s NWWRF, as well as the upcoming Paula Fuga concert at Lola’s Room August 15th.  We also did a short phone-in interview with the amazing Paula Fuga; during the interview the California Highway Patrol paid their vehicle a visit by knocking on the windows while they were pulled over trying for better phone reception!  A little chaotic and very funny, we hope everything turned out just fine and that no one was unnecessarily hassled by the police!  Big thanks to Paula for her time shared with our listeners, as well as for offering up two more full weekend passes to the NWWRF; sharing is caring.

Comments

Podcast?

I would love you to make this show available as a podcast (rather than the manual download of previous shows available on the blog).

Would be great to have the show coming straight down onto the iPod...

Suggest you could use Podomatic or something similar to create the podcast (effectively an mp3 blog, rather than a regular blog with a link to the file - but you knew that..).

 

 

cheers.
