Son of Haberdasher Presents A Couple Of Mixes presents:

Hey Listeners,

Doing something a bit different tonight. My son Henry had been planning to be home for Thanksgiving and was going to come up and do the show like he has several times during the week of Thanksgiving. Anyway he decided to follow the CDC recommendations and not travel. But he did send two mixes that I will be presenting for him to you tonight with very little interruption.

Mix ii. is – “melt like candy in ur mouth” – it will run about 43 minutes. We’ll take a break and then do mix ii. “my boys shoot up the playground” which runs about 47 minutes.

That will leave us with a little time that I’ll figure out how to fill.

This will be a lot different than an ordinary MIGFS show, so sit back and enjoy.

The Haberdasher

Global A Go-Go presents:


Kokoroko is a young octet from London fronted by three female horn players; their music bridges Afrobeat, highlife and modern jazz. They’ve released an EP and a couple of singles so far, and I expect more good things from them in the future.

Kokoroko’s brand new single “Baba Ayoola” is a tribute to saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi’s grandfather. It’s an ideal introduction to their sound and you’ll be hearing it on this week’s episode of Global A Go-Go.

Also this week (Monday November 23, 3:00-5:00 PM on WRIR, for two weeks afterwards at, check your local listings for airing on other radio stations, and any old time at my podcast site): acoustic music of the Sahel, old-fashioned Afropop is sounding good to me right now, three 5-star albums of South African jazz, modern highlife from Ghana and the roots of Colombian champeta, where cumbia meets Afrobeat.

All the podcasts:

Monday Breakfast Blend presents:

Today we did a deep dive into the history of New Age music; its influences, its cultural causes and effects, and its enduring icons.

The first block features artists that represent New Age’s disparate influences, from jazz guitarists to pioneers of experimental and ambient music. In block two, we hear some proto- and early New Age like Tony Scott’s Music for Zen Meditation, and explore the term “New Age” and its deployment as a marketing technique. We then look into the iconic Windham Hill Records label in a block largely featuring “soft jazz” like Alex de Grassi and George Winston. Enigma’s “Return to Innocence” and cultural colonization get a once-over, then we head into a Hearts of Space block for some Slow Music for Fast Times™. Icons of the genre like Enya, Vangelis, and Kitaro get their due, and the episode closes out with some New Age standard-bearers of today, like Leo Takami. Thanks so much for joining me!


An extended (4+ hours) version of this playlist is available here.

The music playing in the background while I talked is all from the wonderful compilation I Am The Center: Private Press New Age in America 1950 – 1980 from Light in the Attic Records.

Here’s the Timothy D. Taylor piece on “Return to Innocence” that I mention in the show: A Riddle Wrapped in a Mystery: Transnational Music Sampling and Enigma’s Return to Innocence.

And finally, here are some links to articles I referenced in one way or another:
