Charts August 24-30, 2019

I'm back after a lengthy health-related absence, feeling much better now.  I've resumed my music director activities and I'm looking forward to bringing Global A Go-Go back to the airwaves as soon as a slot is available at WRIR.  Look for WRIR's world music charts every week in this space.
