Bill's out of the office today, so I'm (Garry Morse, DJ for WRIR's Lost Music Saloon, Mondays 5-7 p.m.) filling in for him. I lived on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands for 8 years, and on Guam out in the Pacific Ocean for another 7 years. I've been lucky enough to be able to travel around the globe, and in addition to the sights and experiences that foreign trips allow, I've always made it a point to sample two things during my travels: Local music & local foods!
Today's Global a Go-Go will focus primarily on the music of Africa, and on the music of various islands around the world, but you'll also hear music from the Middle East, Europe, Japan, Southeast Asia and Australia as well. That's a lot of exotic music, but most of it will be friendly to Western ears.
So kick back, and ENJOY!
