A Tribute to Tony Alabi (Firefly)

We are sorry to announce that Tony Alabi, host of "Africa O-Ye" (known on the air as Firefly) died on Monday, January 24, of a serious stroke. Tony had been a KBOO volunteer and programmer for over fifteen years.  In the late 1990s, we were conducting an outreach campaign in Portland to recruit new volunteers for music programs from around the world, such as Africa, Indonesia, India, Hawaii, and Korea.  Tony came to KBOO with a proposal for an African program, which started in 1998.  He also was a music promoter in Portland, and brought in many African and reggae bands, and was a participant in the Homowa African Music Festival.

Forward is not just a direction, it's a way of life for Colorado based producer Alex B who is rolling out big tunes under the new guise of Paper Diamond. The new project finds the trusted producer moving into previously untraveled musical territory. The Paper Diamond sound has raw energy and the kind of dramatic anticipation only a seasoned producer can incite. Driving beats and bass grab on tight while deep, rich tones rumble under layers of spacey synthesizers, sweet melodies, and catchy vocals. One thing is for sure. The energy is high.
