Found again

I used to listen on WDET in Detroit, Michigan in the 1980’s and I’d make cassette tapes to send to my sister in Oklahoma where they had nothing like this. Thanks for making these podcasts so we can listen again!

Great music, fascinating stories

My favorite radio show of all time. Great music from all over the world, wonderful host, erudite contributors. Brings the music, culture, and people of the places visited alive. They actually go to most of the countries whose music they feature, and talk to the musicians and people.

What a great program about the black diaspora!

This is the best program I have ever heard about music through out the black diaspora. Couldn’t be happier with this programs content. I learn so much. They did an episode about Barbados music that I loved.
