Episode 6: Brazilian Gateway Drug (Rerun)

12:00pm, 8-23-2020
<< Tropicology

Here is a summertime tradition I have observed since the very first year of the radio show: 2 hours devoted to the ultimate feelgood summer soundtrack, the music of Brazil's Jorge Ben. Jorge Ben was the artist who truly hooked me on Brazilian music; perhaps he will be your gateway drug as well....

All music today either written or performed by Jorge Ben (in most cases both statements are true).
