this has been my fave guest Songlines playlist - absolutely fanflickintastic. Romeo has a really fine ear for a song. I reckon he'd make an ace Ping-Ponger for Charlie - and it'd be good to hear some more about those Trinidad links from when he lived there.

It's funny, I was thinking the same thing about the Ping-Pong session!

Might pull in some new, younger listeners too.

Good idea. Will pursue. Having never thought much of the group's music, I was impressed how well they fitted with Amadou & Mariam at the Africa Express in Liverpool, and then got a nice vibe from them when we travelled back on the same train. We barely spoke, but I thought, cool people. So like I say, I will follow this up.

Perhaps it is something on this end, but I could not connect through the link. (I have accessed the podcast through the magazine however - nice)

Hi Judith

You'll need to have iTunes installed in your computer first. We're in the process of making all the Songlines podcasts available as an mp3 download, and not just ipod-friendly. Watch this space.

I forgot to include the issue cover on the opening post...
