It will be difficult to avoid the subject on the 22nd but I will go along with the consensus and meet up another day but it should be soon after.
And next time Leon, can you invite us all to your party at the RFH and post the gig on the Live in London listing.

I read this email on the message board under the BBC World Service and was reminded that for those that have never heard Ali Farka Toure and for the next Ali that we have not yet heard, World Music needs to be accessible and keep it’s place on mainstream London radio

email from Naani Benito in Kampala, Uganda

Here in Uganda it was about one o'clock in the evening, I couldn't sleeep, I was having some headaches and I was going to take some panadols and try to get my sleep back. Then suddenly I looked over my phone and started listening to BBC. That is where I listen to my radios.

While I was listening I hear this music, it was like a beautifull poison that kills the nightmares of the night. I couldn't know who was the singer but I just prayed it will never end. By the time it end my headache was gone and I fell asleep in an instant.

Next morring I told to myself how much I enjoyed the song and when I searched on the BBC web site it was a song played by Ali Farka Toure. I enjoyed so much that it scared away my headache and then I thought how much you (charli Gellet) love your job.

I hope you get this and I would like to thank you for the blessed night you gave me.

Thanks, Ian. Are you able to say more on this, or is this sensitive information?


As promised:

Starting next Monday, the new web-based Channel 4 Radio - a precursor to Channel 4's bid for a digital radio franchise next year - will be showcasing a series of world music programmes squarely aimed at making the music accessible to the non-specialist listener. Presented by fRoots writer - and one of Charlie's regular Saturday night studio helpers - Elizabeth Kinder, Worldwide Music Guide will be a series of six one-hour programmes made available fortnightly through the summer in streamed 30 minute instalments, all archived for later listening as the series unfolds.

The programmes are made by independents World One Productions.
