1. From the Isle of Music, May 29-June 3
We have just returned from Cubadisco 2017, Cuba's most important music awards program, with the best new Cuban music and a lot of new interviews. We will begin broadcasting this wonderful new content June 4.
Meanwhile, this week is a replay of an early 2016 episode featuring members of Conjunto Chappottin, one of Cuba’s most historically important conjuntos. We will also feature a highly varied mix of other Cuban music genres.
Four opportunities to listen on shortwave:
For the Americas and parts of Europe, Tuesday 0000-0100 UTC on WBCQ, 7490 KHz from Monticello, ME, USA (Monday 8-9PM EDT in the US)
