Starting off with some newer music in the first hour.
In the second hour, I've selected a few songs featuring the guitar artistry of the late great Master Mwana Congo, Ignace Kounkou. His passing on January 8 was a blow to all who love great the Congolese guitar stylists. He contributed his signature looping, liquid riffs to hundreds of songs by many artists and groups, particularly in the 1980s. I purchased many LPs back in the day on which he played, some were procured simply because I saw his name on the jackets.
I've featured his music many, many times on programs in the past and you can find the cover art for most of the albums included in today's program on these pages by searching for the album name.
I hope that you'll enjoy the music!
