Isle of Music releases Monday programming guide

Our February 29 edition of From the Isle of Music will feature an interview in Spanish (with music) with Juan Carlos Marín, one of Cuba's best young Jazz trombonists, more of the Cuban classical release Piñera Concertante and a variety of other Cuban music including some folkloric Afro Cuban music from Team Cuba de la Rumba. 

We are grateful to our growing family of listeners, and although we aren't available for listening on demand, we are researching options for a possible rebroadcast of the program at an hour more convenient for Europe and Africa, where we are on in the wee hours (we will hang on to our current time and date, which is perfect for the Americas, in either case).

 Every Monday night from 8pm-9pm EST in North, Central and South America (Tuesday morning from 0100-0200 UTC in Europe and Africa) on the short waves on WBCQ The Planet, 7.490 MHz.

From the Isle of Music, a new radio program dedicated to the music of Cuba – Jazz, Fusion, Timba, Nueva Trova, Son, Classical, Folklorica, interviews with musicians, even a little history of the music now and then. Partly in English, en parte en español. “Like” our page to keep informed about what we will bring you. (For those without shortwave or outside of viable signal range, there are also a couple of ways to stream the frequency via Internet; see the instructions in our NOTES section).
