Hackney Globe Trotter Radio turns 100. Not received a birthday letter from the queen yes but I guess it is on the way. Yes todays show is the 100th. Broadcasting over 5 years, many hours, a few interviews and many top tunes, it has been a real joy. What can bet better than presenting a selection of music from around the world to the world each and every week. New and old, classics to bangers to the weird and wonderful is what it is all about and today's playlist is a reflection of that music policy and and a few of the highlights that have been aired along the way.
HGT radio and juxtaposition . It s great to be able to see how different styles you can knot together into one show and still make sense. Today is outing goes from Colombian clichy electro salsa to marauding Shackleton dark and dangerous dub, analogue synth experimentations, drum n bass tango, early afro-cuban, peruvian chica, african boogie, a reggae take on the Andrew Sisters and so much more.
