Hi Rob, Sad news about Hugh Masekela--I saw him in concert here in Ottawa a few years ago at Dominion Chalmers Church--it was an incredible show!

Hey Shelly! Well, at least you saw him. I never had the pleasure. One of the kings of world music, for sure.

1:14 PM, January 28th, 2018
The whole 3MA recording, coming up, is TERRIFIC! Been playing it to death.

1:29 PM, January 28th, 2018
Rob Bitschofsky (host)
Yeah, awesome, right? Lots of little groovies lined up for you today!

Great start to the show, RobB. Ditto for 3MA - played some last week as well. Sad news about Hugh. I saw him live together with Ernest Ranglin many years ago. It was one of my fave shows of all time, especially as I had been living in the woods for about 6 weeks and had just arrived back in the city. What an intro back into urban life!

Wow; that's a cool combo! Ranglin and Masekela! And yup, 3MA somehow eluded my radar until I heard your show last week! I stole a button from your coat. And PB's!

In any case, a little three-song set of Masekela comin' up next!

Battle of Santiago does cause air waves to wiggle in some interesting ways. Been flogging them for a while, but never played on this program before. Thanks for that...

You're ahead of me again, PB! They're pretty cool. Further listening required!

Hi, check out my tribute to Hugh Masekela from last Thursday on-demand. Note Rob, you forgot to check off Cancon for Ann Southam, 100% Canadian, Canadian composer, performer, music label.

Hey DD! Thanks for catching that glaring oversight. You're quite right. One thousand per cent Canadian!
