Groove Garden 7/26/08

Ah, the joys of live radio. Tonight I had the privilege of guest hosting the Groove Garden show on KFAI and brought listeners a smattering of dead air along with the entertaining sound of a record being cued up while another is playing. Oh, and I forgot to back announce a few songs. Even so, we did hear some nice new music from Buika, Allá, Hercules & Love Affair and Seun Kuti, plus classics from Shuggie Otis (seen above), James Brown, Chaz Jankel, Love Unlimited, Curtis Mayfield, Ini Kamoze, and many others. You can stream the show, warts and all, for two weeks here. The playlist follows the break.
