Global A Go-GoGlobal A Go-Go: Friday March 22, 5-7 PM

As I write this post on Thursday afternoon, WRIR's Spring '13 Fund Drive has just crossed a major milestone: 500 people have now donated, making this only the second drive in which we've gone over the 500-donor mark.  Thank you to all of our donors for helping keep this amazing experiment in community-made radio thriving for another six months.

And the drive isn't over yet: we're still trying to raise as close to $40,000 as we can, so if you haven't donated yet it's not too late to do so — just click on the Donate button on our website (, or simply use this link:

Richmond is being treated to another performance next week by the University of KwaZulu-Natal's Jazz Legacy Ensemble (pictured above) — they played at the Camel last fall, and they'll be at VCU's Singleton Center on Thursday March 28, along with the VCU Africa Combo and special guest J. Plunky Branch.  To get you warmed up for this event, I'll play a set of some of my favorite South African jazz recordings by Abdullah Ibrahim, Dudu Pukwana and others.

Also this week: a little bit of Latin psychedelia, up-to-date Middle Eastern grooves, and some 1970's Afro-funk.  Plus a rare appearance of Auto-tune on Global A Go-Go — trust me, you'll like it.
