Comments

world beat is a great show

Thank you djCharlie for all the good tunes... you always play great stuff!

12-23-08 show

Is there a playlist for 12-23-08. I believe it was hosted by DJ Troy. There were a few songs that were played that I really liked. I think they were from a CD released in 2008.
Analog records
Africa label
Orchestra Ritmo de Poly de Benin or something like that
recorded: 1973 -1975

Thanks

eric
