Here’s this weeks newsletter:
Around the World is on Slice Audio, Ferry FM, and Radio Larne on Sundays at 10:00 pm to midnight. On Tuesdays at 7:00 pm the show is broadcast on Bangor FM, Lisburn’s 98FM and FM105 Down Community Radio.
Bonjour à toutes et à tous, γεια σε όλους, გამარჯობა ყველას, 여러분, 안녕하세요 but especially buenos días a todas y a todos. Just a few of the languages to be heard in this week’s show and “especially” Spanish because of the featured album.
And another special greeting to all the new readers of the newsletter. Thanks to everyone for signing up and remember, I’m keen to hear your suggestions for the show, too.
This Week’s Feeatured Album: Way back in the mid-1970s, an Irishman called Dave Robinson set up a record label with Jake Riviera. Stiff Records signed musicians like The Damned, Wreckless Eric, Ian Dury, and Elvis Costello. Costello’s second album was “This Year’s Model” released the same year I became a fledgling radio DJ. And I played it and played it and played it.
On the featured album this week, (I Don’t Want to Go To) Chelsea becomes (Yo No Quiero Ir A) Chelsea; This Year’s Girl, La Chica de Hoy; Night Rally La Turba. The Spanish Model is the old Elvis Costello and the Attraction’s recording with Spanish speaking musicians either fronting or duetting with Costello.
I’ll be playing 5 – not 4 – tracks, because it’s so good (and the tunes are so short!)
Some other highlights: As far as I can see Trio Mandili have only released two albums. But they have made dozens of simple YouTube videos and the track I’ll be playing Apareka is probably the first. (After this, it seems, they realised they could get a better shot holding the phone camera landscape not portrait.) They videos follow a very simple template. The three young women make a selfie video as they walk along country roads, through villages, fields and so on singing in close harmony accompanied by a panduri, a traditional Georgian string instrument.
The summer’s gone … but looking back, this is a good way to remember sunnier days Clare Sands Iontach Bheith Beo (Good to be Alive) featuring BRÍDÍN.
The 16-piece London/African band Balimaya Project have a very impressive album Wolo So. Here’s a live performance from last month
A Korean band I’m looking forward to seeing at WOMEX at the end of the month is Dong-Yang-Gojupa.
And there is a lot more!
