Southwest Louisiana's longest-running reggae tradition...Rasta Reggae Radio! You will hear two hours of True Word SoundPower including classic to 21st Century Roots-Rockers, ska, rocksteady, dee-jay, nyabinghi, dancehall and dub. A typical program will open with earlier vintage classics before moving to newer releases, followed by a live-in-concert set and a dancehall set before concluding with more classics from the Golden Age of Reggae. KRVS was the first Southwest Louisiana radio station to establish a steady weekly Reggae showcase beginning back around 1980.
This week's worth of MEDICINE BALL CARAVAN broad (& web)casts (11am-noon Central Standard on 88.7FM or www.krvs.org) begins with music by Wilco, Neko Case, Nilsson, Yes, Tom Waits and Ahmad Jamal. Also: the latest by Carbon Poppies, Joey Ramone and Little Hurricane and nice instrumental tracks by both Nick Lowe and Sonny Landreth.
