Dirty Roots Radio to Welcome Dan Charnas & Marty Reinsel and Feature HARD TIMES & NURSERY RHYMES

Big doin’s on the Dirty Roots Radio Show tonight!

First off, we’ll visit with Dan Charnas, author of a great new book, “The Big Payback: The History of the Business of Hip-Hop”. Charnas is a journalist, screenwriter, record producer, and teacher. He was one of the first writers for The Source and part of a generation of young writers who helped create hip-hop journalism. This amazing book has been getting VERY POSITIVE reviews everywhere from Rolling Stone Magazine to Amazon.com.

Our second special guest of the night is our good friend Marty Reinsel, drummer for the Seattle-based band GravelRoad. Marty has served as the tour manager and drummer for the legendary Mississippi Delta bluesman T-Model Ford (both T-Model and Marty have been on Dirty Roots numerous times).

T-Model Ford has released a brand new album, “Taledragger”, featuring GravelRoad as the backing band. It’s good stuff and Marty will tell us all about it!

Toward the second half of the show, we’ll play the new album by Social Distortion, “Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes”, in its entirety.

We’ve made two bold statements that we’re sticking with: #1) Just three weeks into the year, this is the best album of2011, and #2) This is Social Distortion’s masterpiece) so far!). We have two copies of “Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes” to give away.

In addition to all this, we’ll feature new music by Cake, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, T-Model Ford with GravelRoad and more!!!
