— Highlights this week included the Mauritanian field recording from a compilation put out on CDR by Ian Nagoski, whose recent Black Mirror collection on Dust-to-Digital Records is also a real gem. Shaina, who co-hosted today, brought that in, as well as the really nifty anthology of Bollywood singer Geeta Dutt.

— There was a bit of a György Ligeti theme today: I started with a track from the new Vandermark 5 CD that was dedicated to the Romanian/Hungarian/Austrian/Jewish composer, and then we found a recording of an electronic piece by the man himself. Click on the lovely image above to go to the site I lifted it from.

Background Music: Benny Golson – Tune In, Turn On (To the Hippest Commercials of the Sixties) (Verve 1967)
