This week we explore the music of the Roma and Jewish diasporas, and include sounds ranging from Balkan brass to Ladino indie rock. Plus a live interview with Guy Mendilow, who is on tour with his diverse musical ensemble (with members hailing from Israel, Palestine, Argentina, Japan, the UK and the USA) in support of his “Tales from the Forgotten Kingdom” project and CD, a sonic journey from the Balkans to the Mediterranean to Jerusalem.
…in which we hear a track from each of the ten best new global releases. Plus more new releases, old favorites, and your requests in hour 2. Also, it’s the KAOS fall membership drive: To become a KAOS member or renew your membership, call 360-867-6894 or visit http://www.kaosradio.org/join/

This week, a mix of global sounds, new and old, and a request for you to support KAOS Community Radio, the station in Olympia, WA where Spin The Globe originates. If you’re familiar only with Spin The Globe, check out the rest of the KAOS lineup, including local and syndicated music, news, and public affairs shows. It’s a mix you’ll only get on a grassroots-grown community station, commercial-free and programmed by humans, not corporations.

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!).
And you can still grab this show — and subscribe so you’ll never miss an episode — via iTunes.
