The sea: Water, waves, fish, pearls, ships, sailors, pirates, buccaneers and, of course, mermaids, is the theme for the music part of today’s program (the first 90 minutes). The last ½ hour is, as always, dedicated to Spanish language literature but today it’s approached through Greece.
Blowing the roof off the place tonight with brand new vinyl from Eric Blowtorch…along with U-Roy! Also, choice new dubs from the Basque Dub Foundation (BDF); a cool new track from Sista M (and DaVinci Sound); and part 2 of the “Gangsters, Vampires, Politicians, & Informers” Mix by Emch from Subatomic Sound System. Whew!
Guest Celestin Radison from Madagascar explains the French game of Petanque or Boules. Madagascar has taken the world championship three years in a row! We will listen to several songs from Madagascar. The 2nd half of the program features old and new music from France and French-speaking countries.
