Options Muriel's Treasure with Irwin: Playlist from May 23, 2007 Options

Irwin's avatar View Irwin's profile Options

An hour of vintage calypso, soca, mento, pan, and related Caribbean genres - and NO reggae (or Belafonte). Sexy and saucy, ribald and raunchy recordings from the 1920s to the 1980s, and occasionally later. Hear tropical and topical chunes from the Duke of Iron, Lord Kitchener, Wilmoth Houdini, The Mighty Sparrow, Lords Invader and Nelson, Atilla the Hun, Terror, Executor, King Radio, and other colorfully named calypsonians of yore. Hosted by the mythical Muriel and a white Jewish guy from the Jersey suburbs. Click here to visit the Muriel's Treasure blog. (Visit homepage.)
