Roots

Music coming to town, listener requests & songs about chickens!

During the first hour we listened to A. Kanyakumari, one of South India’s great viollinists. This was a concert recorded by the Indian Society of Minnesota in October of 1991.
During the second hour we Mauricio Sanchez and Edgar playing original music on Andean wind and string instruments.

Ron and Jean sat in for Ken this week. Of course songs about truck driving, train derailments, North Korean nuclear threats and very many examples of questionable marriage practices followed. Probably better you just listen to the archive and judge for yourself. (BTW, only two more weeks till Mr. Hippler returns.)

All over the board, as usual, this afternoon. Dan HIcks, Hayes Carll, Neil Young, Michael Nesmith, Seatrain, Ry Cooder, LIndisfarne, Holly Golightly, Fred Eaglesmith…to view the entire playlist, click “episode details”. You may link to the archive of the show from that page, too.

Follow up to Ana Moura’s 2nd visit, along with a tip of the hat to Bajofondo. Stand by for pledge drive coming the next two Wednesdays on Global Beat ! Pledge NOW !
