Show Notes: Even with hints, listeners had trouble placing the original version of "Musicawi Silt" as an Ethiopian song, made famous by the Wallias Band and remade by the Daktaris and, more recently, Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra. Several callers called to ask about Angelique Kidjo's version of "Summertime," which might as well have been the cover song of the week. Oh, well.

# Our cover song of the week was the African Show Boyz acoustic cover of the Bob Marley classic "Three Little Birds."
