African Rhythms, KFAI 03/31/11: Pledge Drive!

Keeping the fires burning (over 1/3 of the way to our goal of $80,000), Charlie, Jojo, Deborah and I made the case for supporting African Rhythms and KFAI. Along the way we heard a brand new track by Orchestre Poly-Rythmo from their first album in 20 years plus plenty of classic African popular music including cuts from King Sunny Ade, Vieux Farka Toure and Orchestre Baobab. You can show your support for independent radio by visiting the KFAI site and you can check out the show and playlist here (and here).
