Let’s start what we have come into the room to do! Episode 4 is a trip back to the ultimate motherland, Africa, as we give you a taste of Afrobeat, Highlife, Punta, Salsa and Mambo. Let’s not forget the usual intoxicating mix of funk and tejano music, and Radio Pocho’s very own interpretation of Cheech and Chong’s Mexican-Americans titled, Minnesota Mexicans!
MAJORMAJOR birthday shout outs to Danny Topete and amalia deloney.
Tonight, a TWO-fer. Two bands for the price of NONE. This show features the music of Al's Rockabilly Quartet with an appearance by Poverty Hash near the end of the show on tour and coming through MN headlining this year's Palmfest and was originally broadcast on July 21, 2010.
Tonight we blasted off into space on a summer “Lunar Lunatics” special…commemorating the first moon landing 7/20/1969. This part of the show was planned. What wasn’t planned until days before was that we would also be doing a tribute to the late Lincoln “Sugar” Minott. Sadly, Sugar passed away at the young age of 54 on July 10th. This dubwise trip to the moon, and the far reaches of space is dedicated to the memory of the great Sugar Minott.
Here’s a bit of a rattlesnake! Radio Pocho takes you into the world of Chicano Rock and Rock en Español. But of course we’ve got the usual assortment of disco and funk tunes to make you shake your rump and the slow jams that’ll have you holding someone tight.
