20 September 2007


Had the great good fortune to be asked to guest-host for one of KAOS's new "world music" shows this morning, and had a great time doing it. So great, that I'm sharing the playlist with you. I'll be back with some new CD reviews shortly, but in the meantime, check out this fabulous noise! (One definition of Xenophilia, by the way, is "the love of new, unusual, or strange things" -- very much in line with my musical tastes!)
