6/24/2013 Pam Without Boundaries

 

Thanks to International DJ Paul Harding for the excellent preview of African Summer at the Cedar Cultural Center, as well as bringing in some fine new releases from the Rough Guide catalog and giving us the heads-up about The Cat Empire, fun music in the skakin' beat from Australi-ska. (Am I fired for that?)

I started the morning with Karl Denson's Tiny Universe--the title track to "Brother's Keeper." When the show aired there were still 100,000+ homes without power in the metro area and the utility workers were hitting it hard. In these kinds of nature-inflicted situations, we are reminded what a tiny universe it is and how we can be our brothers' keepers. 

RIP Bobby "Blue" Bland.
