Melting Pot

Show yesterday was brought together at just about the last possible moment, because I’ve been swamped with work. Generally I plan these shows out over the entire week, but that wasn’t the case and it might have actually been a good thing. After Miguel Cotto’s thrilling victory in his revenge rematch against Antonio Margarito, I knew I had to start off with an anthem for Puerto Rico and what better choice than Eddie Palmieri’s “Puerto Rico.” From there everything fell into place very quickly, including a track from last week’s Boogaloo Assassins session (look for a giveaway soon for their upcoming show at the Mint) new music from The Strange Boys, M.E.D. and Gonjasufi, as well as reissued work from Shin Joong Hyun and the Lijadu Sisters. Just about all of the second hour is given over to an interview I did with Mike James Kirkland (separate post coming) that very easily could have gone on for another hour or two. I just barely got in some Badu at the end to get that giveaway in before my time was up. Enjoy!
