I sat in for Luke on the year end edition of Temposphere on KFAI and followed a few different musical trails including a path into trippy 70s folk that morphed into a kind of Beatles homage. There were also African rhythms, vintage Minneapolis R&B, modern soul and samba and some reggae and jazz. For full details check the show page at the KFAI site.
