2012-01-27: Polyrhythmics live at KAOS

What a way to round out the month… the Polyrhythmics joined me live in the KAOS performance studio for a rousing set of funky global music, including songs from their recent album Labrador and some unrecorded tracks. You may think of global funk as an evening sound, but they proved it works for the morning hours too. Special thanks to Daniel for manning the mixer and making it all sound great!

2011-04-08 You Heard Them on KAOS + pledge

Nawal - performing live on Spin The Globe (KAOS-fm)This is one of two times a year I ask you to step up and be counted as a supporter — not just a listener — of Spin The Globe. Even if you always listen online, you will know that Spin The Globe airs on KAOS-fm, a radio station that has to pay bills for programming, electricity, internet, equipment, and a few paltry salaries. Most of the station’s work (all of its on-air work!) is done by volunteers. And done well.

We ask that you consider just how valuable this resource is to you, and make a contribution. You can give $20, or $1000, or whatever works for you. But each member is important to us, and we want to hear from you.

So please take a moment right now to call 360-867-5267 or donate online at www.KAOSradio.org Thanks!

This week’s show featured music by artists who have been interviewed or have played live on Spin The Globe. The show includes a few in-studio recordings that you can’t hear anywhere else. Enjoy, and remember to become a KAOS member for the warm glow it will give you (people will notice!).
