This Island Earth

This Island Earth
Sunday January 1st, 2017 with Rob Bitschofsky
Up a little too late last night? Celebrate the end of a strange year a little too hard? No worries. Today it's three hours of very quiet, very slow, very chill world music.

...this is intended as a balm to your sorry state and a kind of sun salutation to the dawn of a great year to come. So lie back on the couch and drift along. Stops include Indonesia, India, Hawaii, Turkey, China, Ethiopia, North Africa and more. Happy New Year!

Very mellow and chillaxing program today Rob. See dj Cheb / Shri Durga coming up too. One of my long time faves. Makes me wish I actually had a hangover, for full effect. <;*)

Aw, you don't need a hangover to appreciate this. Just ears and a functioning soul. Happy New Year, Peter!
