Saturday January 24, 2009

A few sub-themes this week: Chinese New Year (Ox, 4707), Robbie Burns Day, Australia Day. Plus a few new releases (Rokia Traore, BeauSoleil, Taj Mahal, Moana & the Tribe, Les Yeux Noirs, Lester Quitzau etc.)
Last week was a CiTR special broadcast, so my show was pre-empted. It's so good to be back!
