This Island Earth

This Island Earth
Sunday November 14th, 2010 with Rob Bitschofsky
Bitschofsky's Best

Host Rob Bitschofsky celebrates his one-year anniversary on the show with the cream of the crop of tracks he's played since he started. Expect the usual; some Pharoah Sanders, some Philip Glass, some Kip Hanrahan, some choice cuts from Soundway records, the Golden Afrique series and, of course, something from My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. It's all killer and no filler in the first This Island Earth since the funding drive!
