Elia y Elizabeth - Soy Una Nube (Bosq Edit)

Soy una nube que la lleva el viento
Y voy flotando sobre el mar
Ayer quise llorar, por cierto
Mas todavía no era tiempo
No era tiempo, pues el viento
Me guiaba, yo volaba
Yo reía, yo soñaba
Yo reía con tristeza y alegría

A true hero of mine, and all of ours, is dead. Tony was the anti-celebrity, bu****it free, an enthusiast, a supporter of hard-working people everywhere, a master story-teller. The world needs him more than ever, and he is now gone.

RIP Hugh Masekela. I saw him in 1993 at the Kilimanjaro Club in DC when he played a benefit for Amy Biehl (the American killed in Cape Town who was a friend of mine). Met Masekela after the show and was very gracious. He will be missed. http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-42786749

Farewell (for now)

Making Journey Without Maps has been very rewarding since it was launched on WERA 96.7 FM in early 2016. It has been an incredible time collecting and curating tons of rare, vintage, and underground music for you. Alas, it has been time consuming to keep up with so much good music out there. I will stop producing new shows for the foreseeable future but you may as always check out the archives at:

Christmas in Heaven! - #35

Impossible to believe, but it really is that time of the year. It's #Christmas again. Every December, a strange spirit pervades across every corner of the globe – an onslaught of strange customs, a subculture of collective memory, both commercial and ancient.

Tonight on WERA 96.7 FM -- weird and forgotten traditional and not so traditional yuletide songs: UK synthpop, Asian Surf Rock, video game chiptunes, Irish folk-punk, hip hop, baroque pop, indie rock, and calypso.

Monty Python, Pogues, Bob Dylan, Beat Happening, John Cale, Bonnie Prince Billy, Calexico, Erasure, and special guests C-3PO and R2D2.

Impossible to believe, but it really is that time of the year. It's Christmas again.
