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.
