Global A Go-Go presents:

Global A Go-Go has been a Christmas-song-free zone since 2005, just because (as Geoff Berner sings) “The Christians irritate us with their Christmas-ness / It seems like every year.” Not like there will be a shortage of Christmas music from now until the day in question, amirite?

But Hanukkah? Heck yeah I’ll play Hanukkah songs. Irreverent songs perhaps, like one by the aforementioned Geoff Berner, or a new one in the nearly-extinct Ladino (Sephardi) language by Sarah Aroeste, or how about Katey Red giving her dreidel a sissy bounce spin?

Also this week on the eve of Hanukkah’s first night (Sunday November 28, 1:00-3:00 PM on WRIR, for two weeks afterwards on the wrir.org archive player, check your local listings for airing on other radio stations, and any old time at my podcast site): another reissue from K. Frimpong’s back catalog, Cuban big bands, and that’s life (adounia in Tamasheq).

Plus sets themed around two events happening in Richmond next week: the Fania Forever party at the Hotel Greene’s Crown Room on Thursday (more info here: facebook.com/events/672418733738581) and Yeni Nostalji’s first post-lockdown performance on Friday (more info here: facebook.com/photo?fbid=566034447978053&set=a.395309925050507)
