Conflux Cornucopia Cerebellum Cocktail Hour
Episode #096: My Checkered Past
This show was a Skallabration of Shanty Town Classics. Lots of Ska, Reggae, Rock Steady, Two Two, Crossover/Ska/Punk, Third Wave and yes, even some Dub. We also had a special visit from Floratura, who, while not in the genre of the evening, are a beacon of light and positive it feels a reggae adjacent enough to be included as a beautiful interlude which occurs about the 80 minuute mark and continues for about an hour.
We also had DX Funky Grandpaux stick around after his show In the Land of Hi Fi which airs immediately prior to this show for the first hour which was a great bonus, and DJ Deathwish (Chris Khrone) was an everpresent cohort of mayhem as this evening went with the improve tenet of YES......and........and away we go.
