Opening today's program with music from a wide variety of artists from Paris ! Including a preview of Paris Combo returning to the Dakota in a couple weeks. Speaking of the Dakota — a listening preview of Gaby Moreno – an up & coming new artist originally from Guatemala with a wide range of modern styles at her & her band's command. Also I offer a review of the Colombian band I did not catch in their recent visit – Monsieur Perine. Staying in the Hispanic diaspora a couple artists made the program today – one from Peru and the other out of L.A.
Bounced around the musical map today, including tunes by Steve Earle, JD McPherson, Hayes Carll, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Cornbread Harris, Band of Heathens, James McMurtry, Sallie Ford, Ian Alexy, Eric Krasno, etc.,etc……crank up the volume and enjoy.
After a late birthday tribute to both Bob Marley and Derrick Harriott, we thought we'd do something a little different for our annual Skalentine's special… a musical and multilingual tribute to the guy who made Barbie Gaye's heart go giddyup… then Millie Small's, then a global army of Lollipop lovers stretching from Hong Kong (Billie Tam) to Israel (Gila Adari) to Quebec (Jacques Desrosiers and La Famille Staunton) and beyond!
