This Island Earth
Sunday November 25th, 2012 with Rob Bitschofsky
Bitschofsky's Three

I'm celebrating my third anniversary as a presenter on This Island Earth with a batch of old favourites from past shows. Plus a "lost" track from Kip Hanrahan, some digging into Real World's back catalog and new music from Bill Laswell and Fanga & Maalem Abdallah Gunea, who mix funky afrobeat with Moroccan gnawa.
