Susan Ohori asked me to substitute for her world music show last night. So I did.
For the record, Susan's show is the longest running night time show -- come to think of it, probably the longest running show period -- at KSFR. She had already been there a few years when I started my asociation with the station in 1993. Beyond Borders was one of the first non-classical shows on KSFR back in our "Fine Arts Radio" formative years, back when our night-time line-up was known as Radio Free Santa Fe -- before some former station honcho decided it would be a good idea to give away (!) that name to Clear Channel's local "Adult Album Alternative" station.
I'll stop before I launch into a serious rant. Here's last night's play list.
