20 August 2010: Top 10 World Music Albums

We went in some interesting directions today, first in a wide diversity of new releases in our Top 10 segment, then all over the world with both old and new releases, and no small percentage of instrumental pieces. Perhaps I was a little looser having guest-hosted Xenophilia yesterday. Whatever it was, this was one fun show…and the feedback confirms that listeners were enjoying the mix as well. Flag Globe
