This tends to become a nervous habit of mine it seems when I get this busy these days. To add to the madness of recurring transitions here in the PRC, I figured I’d dedicate this hour to you to say…”Hey! I’m still thinking of you!”
This is just another one-off live mix of music and such, put together in real time on the fly. I left Urumchi, Xinjiang a month ago after living there the last couple of years and have been in Nanning, Guangxi since. I’ll be leaving tomorrow for Yunnan and then returning to the states for a month next week. It’s been 2 years since I’ve had an avocado – so, seriously… look out!
There’ll be another of these in the coming days – though focused on and featuring the sounds of Xinjiang that I’m already very nostalgic for. Stay tuned!
Here, I present another random collection of music that has come down the pipe in recent months. Consider this a collaborative downloadable mix with “the Wolf” who has been quite generous with submissions! Enjoy!
* The section featuring an old friend, artist Helen Hill is from a recording I had made of her in 1994 or so – talking about her grandfather “Pop” – I’d always thought about her as one of my favorite eccentrics on this planet. You can read HERE for why I consider this recording of her so very extra special.
My pop, the king of mariachi mix-tapes, was excited when i suggested we do a little podcasty 1 hour mix of favorite songs and sounds from his collection to share. I mean, what’s a visit home (after 2 long years in the PRC!) without attempting to revisit the cultural household sounds of my youth and make a little radio show with them, right?
Featuring music and other fun recordings. If you understand Spanish, you’ll get the back-announces and other half of the banter. Otherwise, you can follow the playlist below. Enjoy!
