Best World Music of 2008: A Spin The Globe Playlist

Here it is, the final Spin The Globe playlist for 2008. We heard a selection of tunes from our favorite global releases of the year while the snow outside slowly turned to slush. A perfect day for radio...Snow Tourist at Capitol -- photo ©Scott Allan Stevens, www.earball.net

Sorry for the infrequent posts of late; it's not the holidays, it's the computer! My MacBook went belly up on me, and the thick blanket of snow -- while stunningly gorgeous -- impeded the arrival of my replacement computer. Back online now, so you'll be hearing more soon. Happy Christmas/Hannukah/Solstice/Kwanzaa/New Years to you and yours!
