2012-08-17 Global Songs about Animals

Dancing Hippos - global music about animalsOn my bike ride to the radio station this morning, I passed a doe and two fawns, and a death-defying squirrel. It was an interesting prelude to this show, which featured music from all over the planet about animals, domesticated, wild, even imaginary.

Thanks for the calls and requests — I was unable to find a couple requested songs in the KAOS library, but hope you’ll find something engaging in the playlist. There’s something there for lovers of dogs, cats, dragons, chickens, even elephants.
