Carnival Mix #103 - Soca Radio Show - ft. Farmer Nappy

Straight out of the HD camp, Farmer Nappy was in the province for the weekend.  Parts of Calgary had been shut down due to massive flooding and Farmer's show even had to be relocated.  The crew caught up with Farmer Nappy via telephone on his way back into town from Edmonton and there was a bit of technical difficulty with the phone signal, but we still had a chance to hear from the man and even debuted his new track.

With a massive performance the same night from Blaxx in Edmonton, Soca helped keep Albertans' spirits high this weekend.  Check for new tracks from Lil Rick, Shurwayne Winchester, Allison Hinds, Destra, Patrice blesses the 'Redrum Riddim' and a massive "Carnival Tabanca" release from Bunji Garlin!

Carnival Mix #102 - Ziggy Marley and more new Soca

With our new timeslot change to Saturdays comes some fantastic new opportunities. Reggae legend Ziggy Marley will be in town on June 20th to perform at Calgary's Epcor Centre and as we are now a part of the 'Caribbean Saturdays' on CJSW, it fell to Drew to do the interview with the reggae legend. The first 10 mins is happily dedicated to Ziggy Marley and his music.

We don't forget the root of the show however, and promptly get into a mix that features more new Soca from Barbados, St.Vincent and Antigua. There's also a crossover gem from Canadian Kardinal Offishall and Bunji Garlin.

Since the first part of the show is all talk, the Soca mix this week comes to you uninterupted. Enjoy!
