Global Beat 01/21/09

I tried to play a reggae remix of Erykah Badu’s Honey on Global Beat today (filling in for the stalwart Doug Cain) but the tonearm skipped across the dodgy pressing like a slap-happy drunk. Too bad, but there was plenty of other music heard, both on vinyl and the modern digital format, including tracks from Tony Allen, Marcos Valle, Chiekh Lo, Coco Tea and Lee Dorsey. You can stream the show for two weeks here; playlist follows the break.
