Thursday April 11th, 2013 with David Dalle
Three hour edition; a lot of music from Africa; musical commentary on Margaret Thatcher and more

Oliver Mtukudzi gave a wonderful, spirited performance in Ottawa last week. I'm trying to sustain the African high with large African segment to start today's show.

I started with the new Laura Smith, an older album from Christine Fellows, and playing now Inlet Sound. I am filling in for Janice and the playlist should be up soon. I appreciate you tuning in.

I think there's a delay when creating a playlist for someone else's show :( Probably the song you were referring to (though a female vocalist) was Vertebrae from Chrstine Fellows from her 2006 album Paper Anniversary. It is a beautiful song.
