This program celebrates Mexico’s Independence Bicentennial. It was precisely on September 16, 1810, that Mexico’s war for independence from Spain began, signaling the end of a colonial period that lasted almost 300 years. In celebration, the program presents a sampling of Mexican classic traditional songs and the country’s amazingly diverse folk genres, all centered on a seminal Mexican poem: “La suave patria”, by Ramón López Velarde.

9/16 in a nutshell…
Hot on the heels of blastoff, we had a couple of Top Deckers, then some impossibly rare 45s found on YouTube… and we couldn’t resist reprising the delightful De Blue Blue Beat by (the unfortunately late) Rita Hovink. More 2Tone goodies also figured into Hour 1. The Sherwood’s Planet hour careened from Pram to Perrey/Kingsley to Sauter/Finegan to Dick Schory… all before the first bumper break! In the home stretch, the 4@4 found poor Cozy Little without a theme, resorting to twisting the track knob on a home-burn comp specifically in order to NOT know what song was coming up in the mix next… think of it as Shuffle Mode, and that was the theme! Put3Ska lollipopped, Giuliano Palma looked back over his shoulder, and The Selecter were fronted by a cool blue lady. Weren’t they always? (Well, except for the ‘b’-side of Gangsters, when they weren’t actually a band yet… )
