Highlife Special

With roots going back to the 1920's and drawing from a number of sources, Highlife was a prominent style of music for over 60 years in the English speaking countries of West Arica. Even though heard in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria , it was dominant in Ghana. Join me in wrapping up our Spring Membership drive on Thur. 4/4 from noon 'till 2 and enjoy 2 hours of great Ghanian Highlife. Included will be the music of E.T. Mensah, Nana Ampadu, the Ramblers Dance Band and many others.

Afrobeat Special



     I will be hosting a special four hour edition of the World Beat Connection on Thursday Feb. 3rd beginning at noon. I will be featuring strictly Afrobeat music at that time. Afrobeat, originating in Nigeria, has found worldwide popularity since the passing of one of it's creators, Fela Kuti. This special coincides with our mid-winter membership drive. Join me then.
