The AGHH is LBCAC’s way of providing area residents with a little safe fun in dark times. “Harnessing the power of the ARTS for the benefit of the community,” is their slogan and this Arts/Music centric show does just that by shining a bright light on a few outstanding artists every Sunday.
The AGHH is the LBCAC-TV’s first show and step toward establishing Laguna’s first community TV station.
The Black Tongued Bells
This episode features an in-house concert by Black Tongued Bells (Swampy, Juke Joint Blues). This high-energy group is performing for a virtual audience.
Says D: “We took our name from a Dylan Thomas poem and, in the winter of 2001, set out to create our own brand of roots music – dubbed ‘American Swamp.’ We tap everything from Roots Rock and Roll, Blues and Motown, to Americana, Cajun, and Gospel. Imagine if the Stones came from Louisiana…they might sound like us”.
The second half of the show is a rebroadcast of a show featuring American Reggae Hall of Famers, The Rebel Rockers. This show was originally broadcast live back on June 6th but was never archived. This extremely enlightening interview is a memorial tribute to Redz (AKA: Eric Morton) as it shines a bright light on the importance of Laguna Beach as an epicenter for the American Reggae Movement.
Note: The American Reggae Hall of Fame was founded in 2014, in order to shine a bright light of the American bands and individuals that worked hardest to spread Bob Marley’s dream of a “ONE LOVE” World. (Jack Miller received the award in 2015.) Since 2015, the festival and as a result, the award ceremony experienced a pause but is now slated for a long-awaited return in 2021
