Radio Flor -- Cascada De Flores
Members of Cascada De Flores, a Bay Area folkloric group specializing in music from Mexico and Cuba, will be Kevin's guests this Saturday on A Patchwork Quilt. They have a new album, Radio Flor, re-enacting the golden age of radio, when everyone you heard, announcers, musicians, actors, poets, and storytellers were always performing live from the studio. Imagine listening to la estacion XEW in Mexico City or La Cadena Azul en La Habana, Cuba in the 1930s and '40s. They will be performing some of their re-created radio magic this Saturday night at The Freight And Salvage in Berkeley, and Saturday afternoon on KALW at 5.
