About

If you're reading this, you probably love global music. Call it "world music" if you want to (sorry David Byrne). The point is, you love exploring music from different nations and cultures and ethnic roots, along with various contemporary styles and hybrids springing from these roots.

And I love bringing all of that to you weekly on Spin The Globe. But since the show is completely commercial-free and volunteer-operated, we don't have funds to cover the podcast hosting at Podomatic.

And that's where you come in. For a small donation, you can help secure another year of free Spin The Globe podcasts (available through Podomatic or iTunes) for the entire planet, as well as some fun Spin The Globe bling for yourself. 

Spin The Globe will continue to bring you not only the music, but interviews and in-studio performances with amazing bands. Past guests include Dengue Fever, Hugh Masekela, Baka Beyond, Vagabond Opera, David Krakauer, Djelimady Tounkara, Funkadesi, Emmanuel Jal, Vusi Mahlasela, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Nawal, Bob Brozman, Oliver Mtukudzi, Yale Strom, Rachid Taha, Tyva Kyzy ... you get the idea.
