2018-11-02 Songs of the Ancestors for Day of the Dead

Dia de Muertos bandWe’re thinking of our ancestors this week as many celebrate Day of the Dead / Dia de los Muertos. So this week, songs of ancestors, spirits, and such things.

The planned interview with RAM’s Richard Morse didn’t pan out this week, sorry. Maybe later. We expect he got a little wrapped up in GedeFest.
