Opening today's program with music out of the Charleston, S.C. area by a fresh group with the name of 'Ranky Tanky'.  Then I feature a variety of songs from Buffy Ste.-Marie and Harry Manx, before returning to Fode' Bangoura who was featured on last week's program before his appearance with dancers at The Cedar.  Staying on in Africa you can hear a couple takes from Zimbabwean giant, Oliver Mtukudzi.  A couple big name Afro-beat stars out of Nigeria are featured before an extended tribute set to the recently departed South African jazz giant, Hugh Masekela !
