You can still get in on the action: just visit wrir.org, fill out the online form, and get the groovy Spring '18 T-shirt, magnet and bandana. If you donated and haven't picked up your swag yet, please email firstname.lastname@example.org -- we'll set up a time for you to come by and get your premiums.
Fund drive season is also new releases season. And after two weeks of special programs during the Spring '18 Fund Drive, I've got a backlog of excellent recent material to share with you.
Global A Go-Go premieres this week will include a reissue of Ali Farka Toure's 1993 classic The Source, TootArd's desert blues from the Golan Heights, electro-cumbia by El Hijo De La Cumbia and E Arenas, Pinata Protest's Tejano punk rock (playing Richmond in June), and the brand-new single from Colombian legends Atercioplelados (pictured above).
Also this week: Latin soul and boogaloo, and Afrofunk chestnuts from the golden 70s.
