New show is up: lots of Kuti family afro-beat goodness, with tasty palette cleansers between courses. Enjoy!
I plan to document my radio show on 2MBS here from now on (at least until we build a site for the Contemporary Music Collective). I’ll be putting a tracklisting and an mp3 of the show. Last night was the eighth installment of the show and I tried something a bit different. I chose 7 artists and played 2 tracks from each back to back. I think this lets you get into the flow of the style a bit more, rather than jumping around so much. I don’t know yet if I’ll do that every time, but it seemed to work quite well. Let me know what you think about this.
