November already .... soon it'll be the year turning. It's moving so fast I missed a whole week's update ... so let's see how we roll now. Be sure to scroll right to the bottom of this post!! News of The Outerglobe, Me Djaying, Sisters of Reggae and Ella the Great ... UP!!
RADIOWISE I'm planning ahead with some great guests lined UP for The Outerglobe on Resonance 104.4FM in London + DAB also and www.resonancefm.com worldwide at 6.30pm UK time on Thursdays and repeated 8am on Tuesdays.
Thursday November 8th it's Johnny Mooney coMD of No Wahala Sound who specialise in bringing forward vintage African sounds who have a new release coming out on all formats, including my favourite vinyl 'Hit after Hit' by Orch Shika Shika + Kọ́lá Túbọ̀sún from Nigeria launching his 'Edwardsville by a Heart' poetry collection + maybe I will try the call with Atongo Nsimba again (ahead of his Green Note, London date on November 9th).
Thursday November 15th Plan A is Foufoula guesting with hopefully a report from 'Bass Culture 70/50 ' at Westminster University, Marylebone Road, London til November 22nd with lates on the Fridays and a pop up shop by Peckings. I may get to speak to Ashley Maher who is in Dakar recording her fabulous by all accounts from previews new album.
