Juan Gabriel, Mexico’s most revered pop music icon, died on Sunday at age 66.  It’s impossible for non-Mexicans to fully understand his cultural role: imagine Elvis, Michael Jackson, David Bowie, James Brown and Liberace rolled up into one pansexual persona, and you’ll start to get an idea.

Nothing was less hip than digging JuanGa, yet no one was more hip than he himself.  Here’s a thoughtful tribute to the man: http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-arellano-juan-gabriel-20160829-snap-story.html.

I’m not going to offer a full musical tribute to JuanGa (that’s a statue of him above in Mexico City’s Plaza Garibaldi, decorated with death offerings from his fans, in an AP photo by Eduardo Verdugo) — I’ll leave that to someone with more expertise.  But I will play you his last hit, a cover of a song by Creedence Clearwater Revival (no joke), and some more selections to get you thinking about the enormous influence of Mexico on American culture.

Also this week: descarga and salsa dura; Jamaican lovers rock; and Dzambo Agusev, the next Balkan trumpet star.

A podcast of this week’s program will be available soon at http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/series/Global+A+Go-Go.

Hey Listeners,

The Haberdasher here (Scotto – could not resist) filling in for Otto. It’s always a pleasure to be able to help out a fellow DJ and cover their show. It’s also tough when you cover for someone that is as passionate as Otto is about WRIR, his show, and music in general. I’ll do my best and hope you all enjoy.

Hey Listeners,

Lots on tap tonight. We’ll start with a Lockn review and then play a few sets of music by artists that while tremendously popular in Canada have been much less so here in the states. We’ll mix it up with a set from the Czech Republic – a musical farewell to my daughter who leaves for Prague Friday and a random set featuring a great CCR cover and one of my favorite Beatles tracks to commemorate their last live performance 50 years ago at Candlestick Park. All coming up – so keep it tuned right here and enjoy.
