This program presents music from Cuba, Colombia, Mexico and Argentina. It also includes some Portuguese Fados. Beginning at 9:30, the section dedicated to Spanish language literature presents the first part of a 1977 talk by Jorge Luis Borges about blindness.
Tonight we debuted the excellent new ROIR release from Darryl Jenifer (bassist of Bad Brains) called In Search of Black Judas. This post-apocalyptic, subterranean dub album would be in good company with the best productions from Adrian Sherwood, the Wordsound collective, and DJ Spooky at his dubbiest. Other new releases included the rootical “Heart So Cold” from the Reggae Bubblers, as well as new stuff from Clinton Fearon, Victoria Moralez (the cool “Keep On Moving”), Mojo Morgan (“Million $ Check”), Missin Red, Chico Mann, and Lionyard.
Chef Pierre Rabbia of the Cordon Bleu culinary school and restaurant speaks to us tonight. The origina Cordon Bleu began in Paris and has branches all over the world, including the school located in Mendota Heights. Pierre tells us of the over 700 students here who diligently work to attain their diploma as chefs, managers, purchasers-in all, to learn the skills to run a first-class restaurant.
