I'm back...with Rupa & The April Fishes on Drinking From Puddles !!

My first show back after a five and a half month break! Thanks to Callie and the other KBOO DJ's for the interim spins.....

and in the early part of the program.... Live in-studio guests will be Rupa & The April Fishes, before their set at The White Eagle later ...

"Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Rupa & the April Fishes create music that defies easy categorization. Their two albums, eXtraOrdinary rendition and este mundo, echo with influences of French chanson, Argentinean tango, Gypsy swing, American folk, Latin cumbias, and even Indian ragas. Their raucous and inviting performances have made them internationally renown, with strong followings throughout the world."

Rosie McGee, Dancing with the Dead

Later October is simply lousy with tremendous Grateful Dead shows and at this point, it's very much a toss up as to what I'll play.  68?  72?  74?  76?  77?  78?  83?  89?  90?  91?  Tune in to know.

Plus I'll interview Rosie McGee, author of Dancing with the Dead, her new e-book largely about her life (1964-74) connected to The Grateful Dead and specifically Phil Lesh, her boyfriend from 1965-69. Learn where her name comes from (not birth), how the liner photos for Live Dead were shot, just how much fun Rancho Olompali was and much more.

Showtime at the Apollo Theatre!

... the Apollo probably exerted a greater influence upon popular culture than any other entertainment venue in the world. For blacks it was the most important cultural institution—not just the greatest black theatre, but a special place to come of age emotionally, professionally, socially, and politically.

Music of Malian guitar legend Ali Farka Touré

 KBOO FALL MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM : MUSIC OF ALI FARKA TOURE

In the music of legendary Malian guitarist Ali Farka Touré (1939-2006), we encounter the ancient West African roots of the blues melding with the modern world.  Touré revamped the indigenous sounds of his home in the Timbuktu region of northern Mali for the electric guitar, adding influences absorbed from recordings of African-American Blues.  Touré's hypnotic sound led to his nickname, the African John Lee Hooker.  In this program we'll hear recordings from throughout Touré's career, including collaborations with Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, Corey Harris, and Malian virtuosos Toumani Diabaté (kora) and Bassekou Kouyaté (ngoni). your host: Andy Hosch
