Program September 28, 2012

First of all, here's a big Global A Go-Go thank you to the 531 folks who have donated over $39,000 so far in WRIR's Fall 2012 Fund Drive.  The number of donors is a new record, and the dollar total is among our top three of all time, so it has been an extremely successful drive.  And it's not over yet -- we still have premiums to share with you if you donate soon via our secure on-line server:

This week on Global A Go-Go, what's new in the world of world music is reggae -- you'll hear a bunch of new reggae tracks, including one from The Souljazz Orchestra (pictured above), whose just-released album Solidarity is one of my 2012 favorites.  Here's my review:

Also this week: cumbia, filling dancefloors since the 19th century; Congolese and Senegalese sounds; biguine, cadence and konpa from the French Caribbean.
