During the second hour we had special guest Rita Mustaphi, artistic director of the Kathak Dance Theater, celebrating their 25th Year.

On tonight’s program we start off with some breezy mile-high club jetsetters like Addy Flor, Fritz Maldener, Bobby Byrne and Charles Fox. We then get to a bunch of requests from our resourceful listeners who always do a good job in challenging me and the Higher-than-fi team; next we’ll experience a super set of BIG GUITARS including the deep tremelo of Johnny Guitar, and end the night with a record titled “A Night Cap with Larry” at the Coco Palms Hotel.

Two Hours of Roots Reggae & Early Dancehall on vinyl, featuring Big Youth, Watty Burnett, Max Romeo, Prince Jazzbo, Tristan Palma, Michael Dread, Burning Spear, Sister Nancy, Brigadier Jerry & more…

This program presents music from Puerto Rico, Tango, according to Astor Piazzolla, and music for the Mexican youth movement #yosoy132. The literature segment presents the second part (from a total of four) of “Aura”, by Carlos Fuentes, read by the author himself.
