Podwireless Archive May & June 2005


For your mid-month lock-in delectation, I've put together two programmes first heard on the interweb in 2005 during Podwireless’s earlier incarnation as fRoots Radio. You'll notice how many more major 'world music' (as we still called it then) releases there still were 15 years ago, before that all fell off a cliff. The 2008 world economic recession gave the coup de grâce to what had already begun with travel restrictions after events in Manhattan in September 2001.
