The central character “Kit” Carradine, is a writer of espionage novels and has a notion of himself as a spy. He is picked up by a man from the secret service, who inducts him into the darker hall of mirrors world to deliver a message. That’s when the paranoia begins.
In this episode I’m playing music from from Uruguay and previewing a couple of festivals happening over the next weeks on the Iberian peninsula: Festival Músicas do Mundo, Sines, Portugal (FMM) and Festival Intercéltico do Morrazo in Galicia.
From this week we are trying a little experiment by repeating the show. The first live broadcast is at 7:00 pm UTC and an extended repeat at 03:00 am Saturday. During the experiment, I’ll be posting the full programme (warts’n’all).
Listen on demand and read the running order.
Here’s the playlist for the show and the updated “listen again”. If you want a downloadable version let me know.
This is the planned playlist for the show and the stream version.
You can read and hear more about the Sarajevo visit here on the blog.
It has been a long held ambition to visit Sarajevo and another to see Mostar Sevdah Reunion in concert. When it became possible to do both and go to a beer festival, I grabbed the chance.
This is the playlist and the audio. Includes Afro Celt Sound System, Officina Zoe, La Bottine Souriante, Mostar Sevdah Reunion

This week I’m posting the show in two, one hour parts.
An oldies show with a significant difference. Inflammable Material melds punk, post-punk, power pop, and in retrospect some who may have been posers.
This is the album I’m excited about this week.
This is the playlist for the show on Slice.Audio. It is updated with links to videos and the iTunes playlist.
In 2017 and 2018 I published A Firsthand Guide to Bled, Slovenia. This is the 2018 edition. I’m happy to provide this to anyone interested with the advisory note that parts may well be out of date.
Download or stream Around the World Friday 26 April.
Profile – Janez Fajfar, the man who represents Bled to the world and at home.
This is a very small selection of items you might see on a menu. If you are a bit more hesitant about trying new tastes, give these a go as an introduction.
The whole point of Firsthand Guides is to give you personal recommendations of places the writer has been. The suggestions are my personal choices. They are places I, my family and my friends like.
People come to Bled all year round, but the busiest time is, unsurprisingly, the summer. It is also the time when the town is most active. Sports events and music dominate, but there are many other cultural occasions, too.
