Global A Go-GoGlobal A Go-Go: Wednesday July 1, 3-5 PM

I've been listening to a lot of vintage South African music lately, courtesy of the incredible music blog Electric Jive (, which is run by a group of record collectors that includes Richmond's own Siemon Allen.

On this week's show I'll spin a set of SA music from the late 70s and early 80s that combines local traditions with the influence of globally-popular African-American music of that era.  There are a few terms for it: Soul Jive, Disco Jive, Bump Jive.  Whatever you call it, it's all funky, catchy, danceable music and really hard to find nowadays.  Tune in and check it out for yourself.

Also this week: folk-rock in French, the golden age of Mali is now, and psychedelic cumbia.
