The show is available for MP3 streaming (2 weeks only) directly from the KFAI site, where you can also view the playlist (here as well, after the break).

Global Beat, KFAI 07/07/10

July 7, 2010

The EBS machine took over the last few minutes of today’s Global Beat with some kind of demonic loop but you can still enjoy most of the two hour mix of reggae, samba, afrobeat and chicha via MP3 streaming at the KFAI site (available for two weeks). The playlist is posted both there and here, after the break.
