Rogue Folk Club Artistic Director Steve Edge, in the studios of CiTR. Note the Manchester United cap!

Saturday March 29, 2008

This week I featured new releases from Les Amazones de Guinee, Phonix (Denmark), The Ossun Playboys (Louisiana), Eric Bibb, and the latest Mavis Staples album - all of these acquired stealthily from Napster (Is this against the law? Yes, I suppose it is, in all probability. Against the DJ Code of Conduct? I wonder. I also wonder if I would ever get my hands on these CDs legally. To what lengths should unpaid DJs go to find the best music out there? Discuss ...)
I also featured some more music found in Memphis at the Folk Alliance, previews of Los Lobos & James Hunter, and Beppe Gambetta - including a phone interview by CiTR / CFRO Dj Linda Bull, and three of the bands who will perform at Vancouver's 2nd annual Django Festival, April In Paris (April 11-13.)
