We have a couple of copies of the Moussa Doumbia CD in stock at Stern's:

Clash Mandingue due back in later in the week.

The Amadou Balake CD on the same label is also recommended:

caveat emptor - make sure you listen to the samples before buying this one. It is by no stretch of the imagination by the same band as the seventies wonders, some key members have died or left.

Drop me a line if you struggle getting hold of the Moussa Doumbia. It's out on a Paris pal's lovely little label ( imo )

Thanks Paul, but a bumper package of lovely CDs from Oriki arrived today.

Glad you got sorted so efficiently.


Thanks for the tip. My ears were a little suspicious too. I'll send your backroom boys an order after the 27th.

Now ... have Como Now hit your shelves ?

email from Paul Garbett

...I've been meaning to get in touch since I started listening to the show - basically since you guys started rotating the presenting duties. To be honest I love it - the music is, as ever, the key. I hear more different things than I could imagine and each in your own way have introduced me to something wonderful.

Mary Ann has been a favourite of mine since she took on what was Celtic Connections and now is Global Gathering on Radio Scotland - the really clever trick is that the Radio Scotland and Radio Three two programmes have a slightly different slant so I get double helpings with few repeats.

Charlie has always been a bit of a hero to me - his long standing and wide ranging knowledge are a given but his enthusiasm and wonder make any show a shared journey. I will always be grateful for being introduced to Son of Dave and re-introduced to the blues - albeit in a new context.

Lopa is a real find - her voice familiar from World Service who would have guessed how much of a 'spin' she could bring to the programme - I've heard more different things in recent times than my wallet can cope with.

Thank you all - and keep doing those wonderful 'duelling discs' features where guests match the presenters choices - an absolute pleasure (especially Son of Dave back in April) - if I has a wish it would be for a special where the 3 of you got together and did the same thing - I can imagine sparks would fly.

One final thing - I assume the recent change of day was as much a surprise to you as it was to me - I routinely record the show for later playback so advance warning would have been nice. Missed the last show and won't have chance to 'listen again' - ogh well - will console myself with Global Gathering for now.

Thanks again

Paul Garbett

There was jazz ?

LK is back 21/11 with some Carlos Cezar that I'm looking forward to hearing.

Plus a session with Zoe & Idris Rahman
