#1624: Tunes Without Borders (guest host: Tony Conquerrah)

After a great Split The Decks episode a couple of months ago, Tony Conquerrah’s back and filling in as guest host while I’m out of town.

Our nation is upside down once again with racial violence and more questions than answers, and Tony’s here to bring some light to the darkness with an all-vinyl mix of everything from to jazz, soul, funk and calypso, ska and reggae.  He’s a goddamn pro (taught me more than a few things) and it shows in this phenomenal set.

Tune in and get some soul healing.  As the man said himself, “…that’s the beautiful thing about music.  Music erases all borders and it doesn’t matter where you’re from.  You feel it and you know it.”

BIG BIG thanks to Tony, and make sure to check him out every week on Shanty Town (Thursdays 10pm-midnight on BBOX Radio) and see where he’s spinning around NYC by following him on Instagram!
