Show Notes: It's a delight to dig into my personal archives
and those of the station and share some of the "oldies."
Some of the recordings are a far cry from the clear, crisp danceable
tracks usually heard on Spin the Globe, but without some of the
ethnomusicoligists' recordings as "the west" encountered
new cultures, our musical history would be much poorer. Many selections
didn't make it to air, so I'll have to do more of these in the
future. And it's interesting to not that while Paul Simon had
his big worldish hit with Graceland in 1986, Stewart
Copeland (of the Police) released his delightful African rhythm-oriented
album The Rhythmatist a full year earlier.
# Our cover song of the week was a delightful
Bob Dylan cover, one of several worldish covers found on the Masked
and Anonymous soundtrack.
