There’s nothing like a visit to a Newbury Comics store to break the budget. In fact, there are few stores anymore that are anything like the good old-fashioned CD and LP browsing experience Newbury offers.
This week’s World of Music features many of the treasures found on a recent visit to Newbury Comics in Harvard Square. Traditional Russian balalaika music? Got it. Norteño music from Mexico’s own Beto y sus Canarios? Check. And, we’ll hear from a couple of hot classics from the legendary Fania recording label.
World of Music is a broke-but-happy shopping bag of blues, jazz, poetry, and world music every Monday from 3-5pm ET on the Radiator. Online, or at 105.9FM if you’re listening in Burlington, VT.
