African Rhythms, KFAI 09/29/11: Pledge Drive!

A tribute to Leonard Dillon and the Ethiopians (all on rare 45s courtesy of producer Ted) highlighted the first fall 2011 pledge show on African Rhythms. Lots more music was played, along with compelling reasons to support community radio. The show is available for two weeks as an MP3 or RealAudio stream at the KFAI site.
