2013-08-02 East Bloc Party + Oliver Mtukudzi interview

Community Radio's Big GunsEast Bloc meets Zimbabwe? That’s kind of what this week’s show turned out to be, with music from Russia & its neighbors, along with an interview with the touring Oliver Mtukudzi, who’ll be here in Olympia on August 9. We talked a little about his tour and his new album Sarawoga (despite the poor phone connection). And we heard a few new releases in the last half-hour of the show. Have a great weekend!
