Melting World 11/19/23 World of Dub

From Ed Roller:

As part of Radiothon’s Caribbean marathon, we present a journey through Dub Reggae, a bass heavy effects laden electronic sub genre of Jamaican roots music mixed in the studios by reggae musicians, producers and engineers.

Originally created as b-sides for singles, DJs started to include them in their mixes with great success while playing clubs.

We'll be tracing the roots of dub music back to its originators: King Tubby, The Prophets, The Aggravators, Lee “Scratch” Perry & The Upsetters. Our journey will also highlight contemporary dub master Ryan Moore of Twilight Circus Dub Sound System and his collaborations with artists like Michael Rose, Ranking Joe, Big Youth, and others

We will also check out the Cosmic Hour Dub Techno and Ambient Dub from Porter Ricks, Varient and Martin Stürtzer.

It will be a special mind altering edition of the Melting World you can groove to bringing the good vibes this Saturday at midnight (Sunday 12:00am).

Please consider a donation during Radiothon, our biannual fundraising effort to keep WUSB operational and independent. wusb.fm/pledge

DESTINIES PROMO for 11/17/23

From Howard Margolin:

Last week, The Marvels opened in theaters, setting a new box office low for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

This week, the Destinies Film Review Team assembles live to discuss The Marvels.

Tune in Friday night at 11:15 to learn if the story accessible if a viewer is not familiar with the events of Captain MarvelWandaVision, and Ms. Marvel?

Are the action scenes exciting or even coherent? Are the visual effects up to the usual Marvel standards? Is the musical sequence amusing, gratuitous, or just annoying?

Is the film really a zero-star disaster, as Newsday described it? And, if not, what is the movie worth on the Famous Destinies Zero to Nine Dollars Rating Scale?

Find out on Friday, November 17th, at 11:15 PM, when hosts Audrey Dettmering, Dave Campfield, Timothy Gillespie, and Howard Margolin, who celebrates 33 consecutive years as producer, review The Marvels on Destinies-The Voice of Science Fiction
