Tonight’s program starts with a new series from France, Noels de France et d’ailleurs (Christmases of France and Elsewhere) beginning with Advent with an explanation of how Christmas celebration began. The remainder of the program features songs from past artists, the golden oldies.
Nicole Krauss talks about her newest book, Great House, a soaring, powerful novel about memory struggling to create a meaningful permanence in the face of inevitable loss.

Also in this show, poet Jen March joins us to talk about her collection of poetry SWIM, and poetry-film premier for SWIM (which she directed with Peter Hogan), as well as a launch for the Co-Kisser poetry-film production company and website. It all happens beginning at 7:30 p.m., Dec. 2nd, at Franklin Art Works in Minneapolis.
Had a great interview today with jazz vocalist Debbie Duncan to talk about her up-coming concert at the Lake Harriet Spiritual Community for December 3rd at 7pm. We had a good time laughing and talking about her music and the musicians she chooses to accompany her on stage and in recordings.
1973 It’s 1973 on this episode of Radio Pocho and there’s Panic in Detroit. The Street Man is at the Right Place, Wrong Time. Valdez in the Country is out there with a Guaganco Te Dedico for Angie to Tell Her She’s Lovely. So Besame My Love and Stop, Look, Listen to your heart cause I Wanna Be With You.
1973 wasn’t just about Salsa Na Ma and a Primoroso Cantar. Dennis Brown might say It’s Too Late to reach Higher Ground but Watcha Gonna Do if there are Clouds in My Sunshine? Just Hang Loose and don’t be Evil. Sit back and Do the Strand cause Radio Pocho and 1973 makes it So Very Hard to Go
