Program: World Journey with Suzanne Corley

George Ingmire and I are in Johannesburg, South Africa, for the Joy of Jazz festival which started today, Thursday, 23 August.  We hope to bring you a broadcast from here during my World Journey show this Saturday.  I will be co-hosting a Saturday show here with a woman who is a DJ on a Johannesburg station called Radio 2000, and we hope to be able to interview South African musicians who are playing the festival.  As for the music format of my co-host, who has been generous enough to allow me to join her on her broadcast, it seems that the music that was the soundtrack to South Africa's journey out of apartheid and into democracy in the early 1990s remains very evocative music here today.

How lucky we who love the music at WWOZ are to have two of our finest Dj's involved in the South African scene.
Suzanne and George are incredibly adventuresome --- Amazing!
