This show had as my guest Paul Bradshaw, founder of Straight No Chaser, and what I would now call a cultural commentator.

Archie Shepp and the New York Contemporary Five - Consequences
Art Ensemble of Chicago - Fem de Yoyo
Dudu Pukwana - Baloyi
Cedric Brooks - Unite Africa

John Tchicai and Tony Marsh in 2008. RIP both

Gina Southgate, who "was there" with Brad, Gilles Peterson and co in the late 80s, has a nice write-up on the BBC web site.
