Ago Ame Episode 1: 9 Oct 2012

I’m going to use Spotify to track the playlists from my radio show, it’s quick and easy compared to entering it all here, and this way hopefully some more cash will distributed to some more musicians, and I can spread the word a bit wider about some of these artists. This isn’t really episode 1, I’ve been doing the show for over a year, but it’s the first playlist on Spotify, so…hey changing the date of the world has been done a few times, I think it’s okay for me to do this ;-P.

Ago Ame on 2MBS ( Listen every other Monday night at midnight (tuesday morning) for african music from everyhwere. Also check spotify for the playlists from the show.

Ago Ame #8

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.
