Lesson Hear

Lesson Hear

a show recorded on June 5 for broadcast on CKCU at a date & time tbd. Which is quite random. I like it.
In the first set: a song which I thought was mis-spelled, but then decided it must be a reference to Aster Aweke; the wonderful Ken Nordine, a tv ads voice in the 1950's - turns out he also had a way with words; Mekons -say no more; and music from Zimbabwe - I believe the song title is correct, but I'm not so sure about the album title.
