Ambiance Congo: March 11, 2012

WELCOME!
This Sunday's program was aired during WRIR's 2012 Spring Fund Drive.
WRIR is all volunteer, strictly not-for-profit radio.
To all of you who did donate to support this support this program and others that you like on WRIR, thank you! To those who are thinking about it, go ahead! It's easy at www.wrir.org. Buy yourself the small gift of getting to hear these programs that so many of you download and, I hope, enjoy. The drive is over but we can always use an extra $5. $10, $50 towards equipment maintenance or rent. And thank you, as well!
Enough of that.
Even with the fund-drive chat, we managed to get you 14 great songs in two hours. including a number of your much-appreciated requests.
Here are some album covers so you can see what kind of variety is offered here, including one sleeve with the youngest photos of Papa Noel and the late Nino Malapet I've seen.
I love the Wenges today, but don't you miss the days when Wenge Musica sounded and looked like that?
For the next two weeks, the program is available here:
But, thanks to Radio4all .net, it's also here alnong with many other editions of Ambiance Congo:
