The Debaucherauntes interview + Top 10 World Music Albums The bad news: due to an excess of airborne smoke and road fatigue, The Debaucherauntes weren’t able to play a live set on today’s show. The good news: they came in anyway, and we had a long chat about their music, their tour, and the various ways a radio host can mangle their name. Plus, the monthly countdown of the 10 best new global albums.
August 24: Music of Immigrants & Refugees
As long as immigrants and refugees are being used as political scapegoats, we’ll keep highlighting their music (and if you want to join me for lunch, I’d be happy to highlight their food!).
