2nd Annual Black History Month Special!!

Wow!  This is really an episode of Oracle that could knock your socks off!  A whole show dedicated to the funky, fuzzy sounds of various parts of Africa.  Mostly Nigeria though, I guess they were just more prolific or, at the very least the albums were better preserved.  In any was a labour of love putting it all together.  Hope you enjoyed it.  If you missed out, have no fear.  Downloading the show is always available at

Now on to the track listings...
