Spin the Globe World Music

Spin the Globe Playlist for 19 June 2009
Music of Jamaica


Today is the birthday of Jamaican guitarist Ernest Ranglin, and we celebrated with songs from him and other Jamaicans. And yes, there's a lot more to Jamaica than just reggae. Plus a pile of new releases and concert previews in hour 2, including a CD giveaway of the new album by Zap Mama.

Happy summer!


Our limited-time show archives are now located on the blog SoundRoots.org -- along with lots of other great global music and 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 Calabash.
