The first hour featured all new releases from some of my favorite artists… then opened up with a jazzier feel as our signal was tested for improvements forthcoming. Don’t forget to pledge starting this Sat. and Oct. 15 22 on Global Beat for our 30th Anniversary Fall Pledge Drive… also my own 30th anniversary of dj’ing on Fresh Air Radio.
Composer/Percussionist Billy Fox came by to talk about the composer workshops he’s been conducting, his compositions, and the October 9 concert at MacPhail which will feature Twin Cities musicians playing his compositions.
Opening with Ani DiFranco Utah Phillips, Global Beat then honors the Eid Rosh Hashanah celebrations. Moving on to preview Thursday’s visit by La Musgana to the Cedar with tracks from 3 of their CDs. Doug closes with a couple of Mose Allison tunes in anticipation of his visit to the Artist Quarter in St. Paul this weekend.
