It’s the 2011 Fall Pledge Drive at KFAI and Brad and Charlie spun a diverse mix of music from around the continent while making the case for supporting community radio and African Rhythms. We also featured a 45 RPM tribute to Leonard Dillon and the Ethiopians.
A mix of pieces Kristina promised to play and cante with Lorca lyrics surround more of Kristina’s and dancer/producer Debra Elias’s conversation about the knitty-gritty of producing a flamenco show.

“Wil-Dog of Ozomatli” Yo yo yo wait a minute…wait a minute….on this episode of Radio Pocho we feature special guest Wil-Dog of the group Ozomatli. He hits us with a special guest set of music including: The Clash, Public Enemy and a nice Mexican banda cover of Bob Marley’s “Is This Love”
Wil-Dog talks to us about balancing the creative process of a large band like Ozomatli, traveling the world as cultural ambassadors for the State Department and an upcoming children’s ablum.
Additional music by Radiohead, Ocote Soul Sounds, Wu-Tang Clan, Kool & the Gang, Zo! & Phonte, y mucho mucho mas…
Another crazy mix of music tonight – including a bunch of new tunes and some items intended for last week’s Echo Beach special, like Senor Coconut, Tito Puente, Paul Haig, Cal Tjader, and 11 Acorn Lane. New releases include Vincenzo Cipollone’s excellent Far West; the heavy new Virtual Dub 4 compilation from Manwel T and friends; and the strange but good Vampire Slayer album from Denja (on Atlanta Street). More new material in the mix from B.Riddim, Zion Train, Goapele (with the sexy Play single), Digitaldubs, Vieux Farka Toure, and Ras Amerlock.
It’s the first week of Pledge Drive! Tonight, Louise and Caryl will feature the music that can be yours for pledging on Bonjour Minnesota. We will be playing the music from cd’s that are offered as Thank-you gifts for those listeners who give to Bonjour Minnesota and radio station KFAI.
