Golden Hour of Anatolian Rock


We honor the 55th anniversary of the day Dylan shocked (or at least annoyed) the purists by plugging in at Newport - with a celebration of Turkey's Golden Age of plugged-in folk, which happened to get rolling right around the same time. Starting in the second hour of tonight's show, we'll hear source recordings and some of the electric versions they inspired (with a few more recent adaptations too).

On a different (and off-air) musical note: If you're hankering for some old favorites (or new old favorites) check out the new Transpacific Sound Paradise All-Time African Music Faves Spotify Playlist at http://tiny.cc/wfmu-tsp-african-faves!

National Immigration Forum: The National Immigration Forum is one of the leading immigrant advocacy organizations in the country, with a mission to advocate for the value of immigrants and immigration to the nation.

Immigration Equality is the leading LGBTQ immigrant rights organization in the country. It provide s advice and legal services to thousands of LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrants seeking refuge, fair treatment, and freedom in the United States.
