Program November 21, 2018
We'll start with some deep roots reggae inspired by a certain Senate candidate who'd like to be in the front row for a public hanging. If you tune in at Willis Road, that should get you to probably about Maury Street.
Next up is a set of klezmer and Balkan fun featuring recent releases by Daniel Kahn, Black Masala and the Lemon Bucket Orkestra. Now you're stuck in some rubbernecking ("gapers' block" if you're a Chicagoan) near the Boulevard.
The second hour starts with a visit to Cuba for some son montuno. You'll wish you were in Cuba -- instead you're in bumper-to-bumper traffic between the Route 1 and Route 301 exits, either of which is a viable alternate route today.
And we'll wrap up this week's show with a set I'm calling "James Brown Ride On To West Africa," including a track from the hot new album by Vaudou Game (pictured above). If my calculations are correct, that should get you to the fringe of WRIR's listening area at the I-295 exit. Happy Thanksgiving, and enjoy the drive back on Sunday!
