Music

Opening with a short set of Dylan covers, in a country-vein – then crossing the border south to Mexico for a couple Lila Downs' tracks.  After that I make a revisit to Sergent Garcia, a relatively unknown group with Spanish & French heritage, and a West-Coast group Ozomatli.  Then the old-school Panamanian salsero Ruben Blades, and the Fania All-Stars, along with other vintage Latino performers. The next set includes musicians from the Venezuelan Andes, and Spain.

Technical snafu aside — the full episode is available to stream and features all the great stuff we know you were looking for — including some new tracks by THE TOTAL BETTYS, LIFE STINKS, EAT FAST & more!

 

Big thanks to DJ Cozy Little for stepping in and whipping up a two-hour playlist of fun stuff on the spot.  He's a legend.

For this show we had the Band AlchiMy as a special guest. 

They play three songs for us but the show did not get recorded due to a technical mal-function.

We speak with Rachel Moritz about her poetry collection Borrowed Wave, which was a finalist for a Minnesota Book Award.

Message in the Music

Exploring the music of Black America: the reason that keeps time with the rhythm and the rhyme.

Take note from the message of the talking drum, the field hollahs, the child's hand-clap game and the beatbox boom.  All is literature, set to sound.

Just another way to share some poetics during April, National Poetry Month.
