On Thursday, April 29th, Ian interviews two publishers about how they are dealing with America’s poor record of getting the work of other countries into translation for American readers. Jill Schoolman from Archapeligo Books, and Martin Riker from Dalkey Archive will have plenty to say on the subject.

And you thought it was just the last Thursday of April… DJ Fathertime joins us in the studio for a three hour tour on the timeline. Ray Barretto, Otis Rush, Marimba Fest 2010, rubber patents, and Jan Brady. Why wouldn’t you want to listen?
The Blues Busters’ cover of Baby What You Want Me to Do turned heads around here, and it led off the 1st hour this week, followed by another fave, Derriiiiiiiiiiick! We peppered the rest of Hr. 1 with everything from Toño Quirazco to Tokyo Ska to Bo Evil by The Slackers. Highlights of Sherwood’s set included more of André Popp’s Pixieland hijinks, an extended George Russell composition (Dimensions) and the coming-to-town Kid Nic Show (coming to Lee’s Tue. May 18) with the vibra-phonic Mystify. A set of 6-min.-on-up longies made up the 4@4, and the non-Roddy-related Maggie Mae delivered this week’s Lolli repeat in German/English. Jawohl!
