Electric 60s-70s
Most of this episode will be dedicated to some very interesting Cuban Rock and dance bands in the 60s and 70s, including some groups that were very popular in Cuba but little-known in other countries except among close followers of the music then.

Adults Mostly……
Send the kids out in the yard to play this week, on Episode 29 of Uncle Bill’s Melting Pot, we are going to listen to some classic Party records (if you are of a certain age, you know what those are) with a little bit of Greece on the side. Sunday, September 24 at 2200-2230 UTC (6:00pm-6:30pm EDT US) on WBCQ 7490 Khz, right after Marion’s Attic, and right before a rebroadcast (we think) of Ramsey’s Furthermore 29/54.
