pmb203 bongos a go go 2014 11 30 03

Get your fingers loosened up, dear listener, as we bring you a frenzied fiesta of bongo drumming.  Having said that, as you will discover, in the right hands the world of the bongo can in fact be a seductively smooth experience.   This week's theme was suggested by listener Randy Poe, who was responsible for the splendid Gene Rains reissue earlier this year which prompted heated debate on the show.
