What's Coming Up?
Plan ahead

The week of November 23, 2015
On the 172nd edition of RootsWorld Radio, we'll begin by heading back to the 1780s with the Belgian band, Wör. We'll hear a bit of Ellington-as-ska by Italian brass band Bandakadabra. We'll also explore a few songs from the latest episodes of Anne-Mari Kivimäki's 'Suistamo Suite.' Then we'll finish off the program with a rebroadcast of a half hour set by Denmark's Trolska Polska in a live performance at 'The Old Mill' at The Třnder Festival in Denmark. You can also read a review of their new CD in RootsWorld.

Hear some past programs in the archive.

If you know of a radio station in your area that should be broadcasting RootsWorld Radio, please pass the info on to them? Nothing is more effective that an enthusiastic listener's recommendation!
