Program March 16, 2012

First of all, here's a big thank-you to the 480 donors who contributed over $37,000 during WRIR's Spring 2012 Fund Drive.  We definitely can't do it without you!  And if you haven't donated yet, it's not too late -- just click right here, it's easy as can be:

After two special fund drive programs and a week out of town, I have a lot of great new music to get you caught up on.
The second album by Chicha Libre (pictured above) comes out May 8 and it's going to be one the year's best for sure -- I'll play a track from it today.  Also on the new music tip: Amadou & Mariam's new single; the second reissue of Nigeria's Lijadu Sisters; a terrific new record by ageless South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela; The Funk Ark from right up the road in Washington DC;  and much, much more.
