Splinters & Candy airs every Monday from 4-5PM ET on independent radio 91.3FM WVKR Poughkeepsie. Live streaming at wvkr.org. Each week Alex Brown presents an eclectic collection of music from around the world.
Today’s episode is a special edition of Splinters & Candy. Since Monday has been a bad day for snow over the past few weeks, I decided to fill in on Wednesday this week to get back on the air.
Listen as we explore the rich sounds of Africa. Music from Benin, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo, Mali, Madagascar, Mauritania and beyond. Tunes from another place.
