WGXC 90.7-FM: Radio for Open Ears

90.7-FM in NY's Upper Hudson Valley and wgxc.org/listen everywhere

Hosted by Dennis Darrah.

Music from around the world is featured. Bringing the audience into the realm of other cultures through music, hopefully expanding empathy for the “other,” and recognizing that “other” in ourselves. From WGDR, Goddard College Plainfield, VT. wgdr.org/.

We continue with our love of African popular music from the 1970's and 1980's today drawing on three fairly recent release: A compliation disc of music from Nigeria, and two vinyl EP reissues. The first of a one-LP band from Nigeria, Ipa-Boogie, and the second of the Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Contonou band of Benin.
