Some music from New Orleans and Brazil mixed in to this morning’s mix of new music from 2010. We welcomed the 2nd installment of the Roe Family Singers Radio Round-Up:http://www.myspace.com/roefamilysingers at 7:45am, and Robert Everest:http://www.roberteverest.com came in at 8:15 to talk about the 10th annual Carnaval Brasiliero (Friday, Feb. 19th at the Fine Line). New Charlie Hunter, Wanda Jackson, and Juliana Hatfield this morning, too.
Tonight’s show is dedicated to the plucky Martian rover Spirit, and it’s cohort Opportunity. Spirit is mired in deep sand and will live out its life as a stationary reporting station. Both were parachuted to the Martian surface with an expected operational lifespan of three months. They have been rolling across the Martian surface and sending back scientific information to NASA for nearly six years. Here’s to these stupendous overachievers!
