An Evening of Afrotainment playlist for 11/15/2009

Program name: 
An Evening of Afrotainment
Air date: 
11/15/2009

Rocked Saul Williams and Afro Punk to prime you for the Sunday show (November 15, Aladdin Theater). Be there or just be bent...

Lots of new music...Earl Greyhound (opening for Saul), Tv on the Radio (not even here but still in effect), some Jack Davey and her band J*Davey (not Afro Punk but still rockers). We even had some Saul Williams to set the airwaves afire.

What is Afro Punk...well, it's full of the fury and political fervor your expect from punk...just with a Black sensibility and swagga....you do know what swagger/ swagga is don't you.? Best act like you do.

“Times are getting tougher than tough,” sings Portland bluesman Lloyd Jones. That is definitely the case in today’s economy and can certainly be related to by longtime KBOO radio blues DJ Tom Wendt who is going through some exceptionally hard times as of late. Tom has been an inspiration for many in Portland’s blues community, having been on air since the late 70s spinning blues music for everybody’s listening pleasure.
