Isle of Music program schedule for April 18-19
Our April 18 (in the Americas) / April 19 (in the rest of the world) program will feature Bellita Exposito, leader of Bellita y Jazztumbata and much more – she has also been a presence in TV and radio in Cuba. You'll hear some great Cuban Jazz and an interesting.interview about her own history and the expanding roles of women in Jazz in Cuba generally. Also, some intense music from Pure Mezcla by Pablo Menéndez & Mezcla, more of the beautiful concert piano album Danzas Para Piano de Ignacio Cervantes, and some vintage 1980s popular dance music from Juvenia 2000.
The WBCQ broadcast is best for the Americas, the Channel 292 for the rest of the world (to date, we have received favorable reception reports from as far East as Moscow and as far Southeast as Thessalonika, but we should be audible beyond as well).
Two listening options on shortwave:
WBCQ, 7490 KHz, Tuesdays 0000 UTC (8pm EDT Mondays)
Channel 292, 6070 KHz, Tuesdays 1900 UTC (2100 CEST)
