Ambiance Congo: May 24, 2009
This edition is almost all music from the golden 1970s and 1980s. There are a couple of newer songs added that fit within the mode, music from artists who made their marks back then and have been making great music up to the present: Youlou Mabiala, Dona Mobeti and the artists of OK International.
I hope that you will enjoy listening to this program as much as I enjoyed presenting it!

WRIR is all volunteer community radio and, on occasion, we have a few technical difficulties.
I missed recording the first few minutes of this edition, so I have included the full version of the first song, by Vox Africa, in the file.
