***UPDATE – the show is no longer available online, but I will be posting some of the records from the radio show at ShellacHead.com***
I’ve always thought of Haji Maji as a sort of (extremely) slow motion radio show. Well, next sunday afternoon Haji Maji will hit the airwaves for real. My pal Tom Diamant, host of KPFA’s venerable Panhandle Country, has invited me to stop by and play some 78s from my collection. “String bands of the world” was mandated to me as a general theme and I’ve more or less stuck to it. We’ll leave the usual Haji Maji territory of the Far East and explore some recordings from the rest of the world; Greece, India, Turkey, Syria, Ukraine, Albania, Japan, Kenya, Bahrain, Persia, Afghanistan, Morocco, Egypt, Norway and probably more. As far as I know, none of these records have been reissued on cd. Yakking will be interspersed, facts dispensed, speculations proffered and one or two upcoming projects might be revealed.
You can listen via old fashioned radio waves or online at the url below. The archive of the show should be available for a limited time about a week after broadcast.
***UPDATE – the archive of the show is no longer available online.***
Sunday, October 30th
3-5pm (Pacific Time)
