Planet hopping

Some planet hopping to provide a soundtrack to a fine, sunny sunday afternoon. Nuevo Afrobeat, some gamelan, vintage mambo, Thai and Cambodian rock, Latin guys making cat sounds, new Lee "Scratch" Perry and even some Kate Bush.

Hello Rob, I've just come back from a 10K run in the glorious sunshine--finally some warm weather! Really interesting and enjoyable array of music on T.I.E. as always!

Nice going, Shelly! Perfect day for a run, for sure.

Was singing along with "Katrina." Really liking this Lee "Scratch"Perry music.

Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Yep, It's pretty good. Brand new album, but recorded on the old style of equipment that he had at his classic Black Ark studios.

Oh my! Radio show-host nightmares! Glad you made it in today. BTW, really enjoyed The Bad Plus' take on Stravinsky and Tears for Fears.

Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Hah! Yeah, three hours of dead silence wouldn't have been too much fun for anyone. Glad you enjoyed the Bad Plus stuff. For those who don't know, I was playing some Stravinsky jazz on In A Mellow Tone last wednesday night. You can check it out "on demand" if you like!
