“Palabristas: Word Slingers” On this episode of RP we’re visited by Chican@/Latin@ spoken word collective Palabristas. A haiku battle breaks out throughout the show and a guest DJ joins the Pocho crew to spin some tunes…Sir Mex-A-Lot.

We have spoken word performances by Rodrigo Sanchez Chavarria, Larry Lucio and Emmanuelle Ortiz as well as an interview by New York based poet Brandon Lacy Campos. Keep track of this great collective at Palabrista.org

And as always we have the tunes that make spring bloom.

Today was a VERY secial show. I was joined by Sweet Foot, Marni Hockenberg, a blues fan who won Rollin Tumblin in a fundraising raffle. She got the chance to come on the air with me and guest host for the entire two hours. She brought in her own music, which was funky, fine and fabulous. Sweet Foot and I talked about the music, the musicians and the the blues clubs. All the while we danced around the studio and generally acted like the Wild Blues Women we were! The first part of the playlist below reflects Sweet Foot’s contribution to today’s show.
