This coming Monday DJ Bongohead and I have a Texas-sized edition of Clandestino ready to air.
Bongo recently made a trip to San Antonio and dug up a bunch of Tejano records. After listening to some of the cool diverse sounds on these records, I figured it would be soon enough I got around to playing some of this stuff on the show, and with Tuesday night's concert featuring Austin, TX's Grupo Fantasma approaching I had the idea of doing a show of music from the country of Texas. As things just naturally fell into place, Anilynn can't make her show as she's in Brasil so a Texas-sized show deserves a Texas-sized timeslot. So we'll be jamming from noon until 430 (Eastern Time).
As part of the program I will be taping a chat tomorrow with Grupo Fantasma/Brownout bandleader Adrian Quesada (also check his new album with Ocote Soul Sounds on ESL). The short interview will be Adrian's third time on Clandestino and it will run during Monday's Tejas feature. We will also have some tickets to giveaway to the Grupo Fantasma show at the Iron Horse in Northampton Tuesday night (DJ Bongohead also on the bill).
The Monday long edition radio jam should be hot. It will be a good time to get the outdoor BBQ going as we'll be doing the four and a half hours with plenty of flavor to spare. You'll be hearing all kinds of good sounds. We'll be spinning soul, funk, rock, cumbias, rancheras, blues, jazz...even a little bit of country swing. When was the last time you heard Brownout, ZZ Top, Charlie & the Jives, Prince Lasha, Bob Wills, Roky Erickson, Freddie King, Doug Sahm, Latin Breed, Blind Willie Johnson, Timothy McNealy, the Dicks, King Curtis, Flaco Jimenez, Tortilla Factory, Moving Sidewalks and Ornette Coleman in the same show? Well tune in Monday...
Clandestino airs live every Monday 230-430pm (Eastern Time) on WMUA.org. This Monday will be a special extended timeslot noon-430.
