February 2014 Global Beat Archives

In honor of our “Auto Club” donors, a car-centric set of music leads into a return of Beatle-mania… another preview of the Eric Bibb show at the Dakota, Mon. Feb. 17… and more Olympic-influenced Russian & Georgian culture.

First hour features a setlist honoring Black History Month; some of the artistry which has inspired me… outspoken artists I admire. The second hour features an in-studio visit from Israeli Ladino musicians – Baladino, playing the Dakota this Sat. Feb. 22.

Dale Loomer substitute DJ. Songs in five languages. Requests were for Paco DeLucia and Ladysmith Black Mambazo. The Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff tracks were back-to-back classic vinyl. Susheela Raman’s – Music for Crocodiles was my personal favorite new (at least new to me) song of the week.
