Ambiance Congo: December 28, 2014

Welcome!
This last program of 2014 was put together live in the studio. As a big surprise to me, coming in with just a big crate of LPs, 45s and CDs and no real plan resulted in a very fine program! What a great way to end another year of Ambiance Congo. I hope that you will agree that we went out with a big bang.
What will 2015 bring? Next week marks the start of the TENTH year of Ambiance Congo on WRIR!
Your requests and comments are always welcome.

Ambiance Congo: December 14, 2014

Welcome!
Welcome to another program of great Congolese music. This time I've again started with some wonderful older music and ended up with new music. It's another show where a big box of CDs and LPs made the program by ear. There's  no end to how many times this is possible. Congolese music offers incredible diversity and possibility. I hope that you'll agree!
If you love what you hear, please let me know. Comments and requests are always welcome!

Ambiance Congo: November 16, 2014

Welcome!
This radio program of Congolese music comes to you every other week.
Sometimes there is a theme or idea behind the programming, other times I just bring a big box of LPs and CDs and play it by ear.
Today, There's a bit of intentional programming, a modest remembrance of Pepe Kalle. I started with one of my favorite songs from this, one of my favorite Empire Bakuba LPs.




















The program before, Mellow Madness with DJ Mike Murphy, featured a guest DJ who spun rare 60s and 70s soul 45s. He was still in the studio as Ambiance Congo started and he had never heard the music before.
Listening to l'Empire Bakuba, he said, "These guys are having a lot of fun, aren't they?" and stayed to hear the whole song. I was inspired by that cue and the rest of the program, I hope, followed the lead
with Tshala Muana, Papa Lutumba Simaro, Viva la Musica, Guy Guy Fall, Titina and a whole lot more.
The show ends with Biya Chante's Hommage a Pepe Kalle and a bit of the wonderful Moyibi album.
