Space Capsule Sound SystemMay 13, 2011
On tonight’s episode, we transform the Space Capsule into an amplifier and mixer that will turn your radio speakers into a Jamaican Sound System, which will blast out nearly an hour of island hits!
The show will trace the evolution of Jamaican musical genres from Mento, Ska, Rock Steady to Reggae and Lover’s Rock to dub!
The set will include … a cool new covers album by the legendary Mento group, The Jolly Boys … as well as Toots & The Maytals, Gregory Isaacs, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Desmond Dekker, The Tennors and more!!
You can find out more about The Jolly Boys and Mento here…
Dance To The Riddim of the Space Capsule! Tonight at 11pm on 91.3 KVLU Beaumont or stream the show online at kvlu.org.
