Temposphere 03/14/09


We started off this week’s edition of Temposphere (sitting in for Luke Andrews) with a nice version of Shuggie Otis’ Inspiration Information by Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings from the new Red Hot compilation Dark Was The Night on 4AD, and over the course of the evening worked our way through lots of samba, jazz, reggae and disco to brighten your Pi Day evening, coming almost full circle with a track from Horace Andy and Ashley Beedle off their new Strut CD called…  Inspiration Information (Volume 2). You can stream the show for 2 weeks here; playlist is posted on the KFAI site and here after the jump.
