Special guest Ben Fink speaks on the International Pedagogy Theatre of the Oppressed Conference in town at Augsburg College – May 18-24. Check out www.ptoweb.org . Also celebrating the end of slavery in Brasil – May 13. Musically a lot of Brasil Africa with an outro from Cuba !
New Music from Rob Thorsen, Esperanza Spalding, Derrick Gardiner, and Bobby Sanabria. I devoted the hour from 11-12 to jazz versions of songs that were hits in the early 60s, when I deejayed for Friday Night Dances at St. Andrews Church in the Bronx.
What a nice way to start the day…
