2011-03-04 Covering Miriam + Mardi Gras

Miriam Makeba’s birthday. Mardi Gras. Unrelated events…or are they? They certainly are not in the eyes of Spin The Globe. We played Miriam’s covers of some famous songs, and others’ covers of her songs today, interspersed with party tunes from some Mardi Gras Indian brass bands, plus new releases and more in hour 2.Miriam Makeba + Mardi Gras
