African Rhythms, KFAI 04/07/11: Pledge Drive!

April 7, 2011

We are getting tantalizingly close to reaching our goal of $80,000. It’s the 13th and penultimate day of the KFAI 2011 Spring Pledge Drive and Charlie, Jojo and I along with Deborah and Bill continued to make the case for listener partnership with community radio. Along the way we heard a lovely new track from the Moroccan-born singer Malika Zarra (now based in New York) plus cuts from Souad Massi, Sara Tavares and Vieux Farka Toure. You can support African Rhythms and KFAI by visiting the KFAI site. Today’s show can be heard for two weeks via MP3 stream. Playlist follows.
