Rita's World Season 2 Episode 1 Wed, 2010-03-24 02:00

Tribute to Charlie Gillett featuring a few of the artists he championed, brought to our attention. The music spans from rhythm and Blues through to contemporary British klezmer via Fado, souped up balkan field recordings and classic african soukous.

Correction: Rico wasn’t in Dire Straits I meant to say that wonderful Afternoon of music that Charlie put together on Clapham Common in 1977 when 5000 people gathered to hear his broadcast and listen to the line up of bands he programmed featured Dire Straits, the great ska trombonist Rico and his band and the rhythm and blues upstarts Darts!
