The program two weeks ago was presented during the final hours of our fund drive (WRIR is a non-profit community radio station staffed by about 150 volunteers) and the show was chock full of talk about that. More than half of the program was talking points and recognition of donors. It was a good show, but I did not feel it was a good enough program to post out of context.
You can still donate to WRIR if you like Ambiance Congo and if you are so inclined. Your support for Ambaince Congo and alternative radio programming is appreciated! Just go to http://www.wrir.org/ and click the convenient Donate tab. Thank you!
On to this edition:
Thanks again to all who asked for requests! As always, your requests are more than welcome and they allow input from a lot more people than just me as to what is worthwhile in both classic and modern Congolese music.
I jumped around in time to arrange the program to fit the requests and to air a variety of styles and trends. I hope that you'll enjoy listening.
