Hey Baby, it’s the 4th of July. Tea from L’Assassins stoped by the show in the first hour with a copy of their new, out of sequence yet very cool CD. In the second hour, Cadillac Kolstad and Johann Swenson came in shoving a piano down the hallway and hauling a drum kit under their arms. We invited them in for some music and fun. Lots of other recorded tunes plus, as always around the 4th of July, a couple versions of Dave Alvin’s “Fourth of July”; always by Dave and his bands…..accept no substitute. Click “episode details” to see the full playlist for the show. And, once there and if you’re really bored, you’ll be able to read along while the music is playing. Thanks to Angie for coming in and sharing the show with me. Have a great 4th and I’ll see you next week.

More African female voices, from Ethiopia open our show today, before moving on to the recent visits from Femi Kuti and Amadou & Mariam and another preview of the upcoming show with Vieux Farka Toure’.
