Show Notes


Bollywood Brass Band: "Mere Yaara Dildara"

Antibalas: "Government Magic (live)"

Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don't have to have college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

-- Martin Luther King Jr.

We celebrated the life and work of people such as Martin Luther King Jr, who fight for human rights, respect, dignity, and opportunity throughout the world. Plus music about rain, which has been with us here in Olympia for 28 consecutive days as of today.

Got lots of calls today about our featured artist, Canada's Madrigaia. It's just two weeks into the new year, but their CD Pleiades is already a shoe-in for one of our favorite albums of the year. Check out their website at www.madrigaia.com for more information.

See Spin the Globe's CD Reviews for reviews and info on new releases. Most of the music played on Spin the Globe is available on CD at cdRoots.com or CD Universe or via mp3 downloads at the Calabash.
