Stockholm to Accra (Updated)
Tomorrow (Thursday) night on Now's the Time: a profile of Swedish percussionist Bengt Berger, whose interest in the music of Ghana (and elsewhere) led to some very interesting records circa 1981-1984. The program will primarily focus on the music of his Bitter Funeral Beer Band (pictured above), including appearances by Don Cherry (far right, in suit, freaking out).
As always, listen on 93.1 FM in the Ottawa area, and at ckcufm.com everywhere else, 8:30-10:00 pm EST. Or watch this space for download information after the fact.
UPDATE: For your downloading and listening pleasure:
