Waitin for my Pocho What happens when you bring spicy pork tamales to KFAI? Engineer Sean says sayonara to his taste buds and we celebrate with some Cumbia Caliente by Jonny Chingas, Mazz, and Grupo Pegasso.

Mira Muchacha, Pochos also get down with reggae Didn’t Cha Know. Southern Califas represents with Umoverde, Sublime and Hawaii’s Pepper.

All the leaves are brown and we’re California Dreamin but Baby Don’t You Cry just Share My Joy. Sacatelo Bailando like Grupo Fantasma and get down like James Brown with Coldblooded.

And with Halloween behind us, forget the boogeyman and embrace the boogaloo as we make you Push, Push, Push with A Deeper Shade of Soul of Joe Cuba, Celia Cruz and Ray Barreto. Relax, sit back and listen. Do you and I’ll Do me for now, Until you come back to me.

Is that enough to get you to tune in?!

Dean Magraw joined us at 11am, setting up the songs we would hear from his new album with Marcus Wise, How the Light Gets In. He also gave us a peek into recording the project with whom he calls the third collaborator, Matthew Zimmerman, at Wild Sound Studio. Although Marcus was unable to make the interview, his spirit was there through the recording, and Dean gave us insight into the rhythms he brought to the project, too. Listen in the second hour if you missed the original broadcast.
