Global A Go-Go presents:
It’s a mostly rock ‘n’ roll edition of Global A Go-Go this week (Sunday April 30, 1:00-3:00 PM on WRIR, for two weeks afterwards at wrir.org/listen, check your local listings for airing on other radio stations, and any old time at my podcast site), with the whole first hour and then some focusing on rock from all over the planet.
The Turkish-Dutch psych-funk band Altın Gün (pictured above) are featured with two songs from their wonderful new album Aşk. You’ll also hear Afro-rock from Ghana, Zambia and Kenya, new progressive Latin sounds by Kiltro and Monstruos del Mañana, and some Latin rock from the 70s including a request from faithful Global A Go-Go listener Dee.
Away from the rock ‘n’ roll tip, I have some Ethio-jazz cued up for you, including a new album by Fendika & K-Sanchis and a new reissue of Dawit Yifru, and we’ll wrap things up with plena and bomba including the latest from Puerto Rico’s Plena Libre.

I’ll be playing some music from a few of these albums later on The Motherland Influence.
Thank you! We come to slay every week.
Put on a great show, my friend.
Done what, exactly?
Oh, Magoo! You’ve done it again!
