World Music

It IS Such a good night – for cleaning your toilet, making love to your man, or doing your taxes… that’s right we pride ourselves on providing the background music you need to get the task at hand – done. The name of the program is Jet Set Planet, and we’re wrapping up our spring pledge drive by coming to you and asking you to help keep community radio strong in the Twin Cities. We’re non-profit and volunteer driven. We survive only on your passion for what we do. So if you are doing your taxes this week may I suggest you consider giving part of that big ol’ refund to your favorite radio station. It’s easy! Just hit the Pledge Now button above.

This is the second and last program for KFAI’s Spring Pledge Drive. Like the first one, it includes nothing but listener’s favorites. Now is the time to support radio by, from and for the community.

Play List

Thanks to everyone who pledged support for KFAI during today’s African Rhythms, pushing us closer to our goal! Brad and Charlie, along with Doug Cain from Global Beat and Lawyer Bill, made the case for supporting independent radio and played a lot of classic material (Tony Allen, Lee Scratch Perry, Samba Mapangala, Oumou Sangare, et al) along the way.

Susana di Palma talks about her trials of bringing Zorongo’s latest work, Zorro, to life onstage, and Kristina plays music sung by young ladies with voices of honey.

Thanks to DJs TWebb & Gilberto (of ENCUENTRO) for holding it down last week with Part I of KFAI’s 2012 Spring Pledge Drive. Tonight is Part II, and DJs Miguel Vargas and Rude Dawg Aguilar will be spinning the hits, and you can still pledge to your favorite KFAI program!
