Show Notes


Cheb Khaled
"Mani Hani"

"'To say that these men paid their shillings to watch twenty-two hirelings kick a ball is merely to say that a violin is wood and catgut, that Hamlet is so much paper and ink."
- J.B. Priestley

With the World Cup final on Sunday, we celebrated with music from finalists France and Italy in the first hour, and other new & old world music in the second hour. Plus a cut from Mighty Sparrow, whose birthday is Sunday (born the same day as Mercedes Sosa from Argentina, a country I expected to be in the World Cup final).


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.
