I don’t know about you, but music makes me high. Everytime I discover new sounds to share with you, there’s a rush, an excitement, even a dread – I wonder – will I feel like this again? Inevitably I do, which is why I love making these programs. We start with two energetic UK ensembles who love the music of West Africa, Me and My Friends and Vula Viel (pictured). We then move through progressive psych to folk to orchestral pop to Americana to post punk and end with the show with a BANG! thanks to a stunning duo – Robbie Fulks and Linda Gail Lewis who certainly go Wild Wild Wild.
