Many thanks to SWLing Post reader, Bill Tilford, who shares this From The Isle of Music update:
Starting March 14 we will be at 0200-0300 UTC Tuesdays (8-9 PM EST Mondays in the Americas)
March 14 in the Americas (March 15 in Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania), our special guest will be Leo Garcia, leader of Timbalive, which just released a new Timba album, Gasolina de Avion; we’ll converse with him and play some music from the album. We’ll also play a new single by Haila Maria Mompie. We’ll also share more of the Cuban Classical album Piñera Concertante, a great new Jazz release by Cesar López & Habana Ensemble, and some traditional music by Ecos de Tivoli.
