Global A Go-GoGlobal A Go-Go: Friday November 12, 5-7 PM

Here's a big Global A Go-Go thank you to the 428 donors who put $31,100 into the collection box during WRIR's Fall '10 Fund Drive, money that we'll use to bring you more great radio over the next six months.  You donors are the folks who make this uniquely ambitious community radio project possible, and yes Fall '10 is now our most successful fund drive yet.  If donating somehow slipped your mind, it's not too late to click here and get one of our cool Fall '10 premium packages for your trouble:

And here's an extra shout-out to the 50 folks who cited Global A Go-Go as one of their favorite programs on WRIR.  Today's program is dedicated to you, and I aim to keep you on your feet for the entire two hours because this is going to be one of my hottest programs of the year.  You'll hear:

  • Brand-new releases from Chico Mann and Fat Freddys Drop (the latter recorded live),
  • A West Africa-meets-Cuba set featuring the long-awaited AfroCubism session with Djelimady Tounkara, Toumani Diabate, Bassekou Kouyate and Eliades Ochoa, and
  • Some amazing garage and psychedelic rock recordings from Africa, including recently reissued tracks by The Psychedelic Aliens (pictured above), Witch and Tirogo

And in honor of Dirty Dacoit Dan, whose punk-rock program Salad Days moves to WRIR's Friday 7-9 PM slot (immediately following Global A Go-Go) starting this week, we'll end the program with some Mexipunk and gypsy punk.
