2011-05-13 Global Horns

HonkFest WestHorns. If you can’t hear them, you’re not paying attention. And I don’t mean the polite horn section of some soft soul hit. I’m talking big brash in-your-face horns marching down your street to take your lawn ornaments hostage. This weekend Seattle will be full of such windbag miscreants (and I mean that in the nicest way) as HonkFest West (http://honkfestwest.com/) returns. Spin The Globe celebrates their seasonal migrationthink Canada geese with megaphones and drum sections — with its own blast of global brass, from Bollywood to Brazilian to Balkan to New Orleans, and wherever else great global brass music is made. Can you handle it?

So we combined the two in one of our famous ping-ponging shows, alternating between two very different nations in the pursuit of one global musical groove. Macedonia Meets Mexico

2011-04-08 You Heard Them on KAOS + pledge

Nawal - performing live on Spin The Globe (KAOS-fm)This is one of two times a year I ask you to step up and be counted as a supporter — not just a listener — of Spin The Globe. Even if you always listen online, you will know that Spin The Globe airs on KAOS-fm, a radio station that has to pay bills for programming, electricity, internet, equipment, and a few paltry salaries. Most of the station’s work (all of its on-air work!) is done by volunteers. And done well.

We ask that you consider just how valuable this resource is to you, and make a contribution. You can give $20, or $1000, or whatever works for you. But each member is important to us, and we want to hear from you.

So please take a moment right now to call 360-867-5267 or donate online at www.KAOSradio.org Thanks!

This week’s show featured music by artists who have been interviewed or have played live on Spin The Globe. The show includes a few in-studio recordings that you can’t hear anywhere else. Enjoy, and remember to become a KAOS member for the warm glow it will give you (people will notice!).

Rokia TraoreFollowing up last week’s show on Miriam Makeba, we’ll use the appearance this weekend of Khaira Arby (with The Sway Machinery) and this week’s International Women’s Day as an excuse to spin a range of other African women making wonderful music. I tried to stick to mostly less well known artists, so I hope you find a few new discoveries for yourself in this show, and dig a little deeper.
