gateway to a great getaway!
Back in the mid-'90s, the city of Wilmington, Delaware, used this laughable tag line in an ad campaign to bolster its tourist trade. I remember seeing it plastering the walls of the city's Amtrak station back then. The best thing we have to offer, city officials seemed to be saying, is an easy rail connection out of town. Not the brightest way to get the odd visitor to stay and spend a few bucks.
Though it still makes me smirk two decades later, maybe I should adopt Gateway to a Great Getaway as a slogan for Mining the Audio Motherlode. What a better way to describe the worldly adventures teed up for you here on a weekly basis. Just peep the current quintet of far-flung and far-out sonic delights and you'll get the drift. And the best thing is you don't have to spend a thing.

"Rei Da Música Angolana"
"Elias Day Kimuezu for his musical profile is considered the king of Angolan music. This musician, steadily and by your courage, because it is not easy being a musician in Angola, for the younger, less is for a man his age, as he said, there are few people who bet on your work and talent." (Google Translated from a description by Amélia Mendes)
