GREETINGS AND HUGS Marc-Andre. Your shooooow thus far sounds like it could be one of mine. OK, for better or worse. In fact I checked. What could *possibly* go wrong with Tuvan style throat singing + Kiran + Ravi Shankar & Philip Glass +++ NOTHING, yup i checked. WELCOME!!

Ha - glad you're enjoying it. Some of the tune may very well be from some of your pat shows.

An absolutely brilliant set - I loved all the background stories! I was particularly excited to hear Huun-Huur-Tu, Sakamoto and Portico Quartet - family favourites! (Oh, I definitely appreciated the Barenaked Ladies CKCU bit). The wife.

Manmohan here this time, as all of the comments above in my name were actually Marc-Andre. It was a lot of fun having a cohost. He and his family have good taste in music! We're hoping to do round two in the future. Other listeners out there have the same open invitation as well. Well done Marc-Andre putting together a show of stellar tunes. Thanks.
