The latest eclectic global radio show starring Trinidadian legend Calypso Rose

Calypso Rose: Summer dance grooves

Another of Peter Culshaw’s peripatetic global radio shows. Star of this month's show is the Trinidadian Calypso Queen Calypso Rose, whose new album Far From Home, to be released in July, is given a sneak preview here.

Then there is the usual wild, eclectic mix ranging from the latest cool jazz releases to cosmic sounds from Cape Verde, rediscovered Prog from Brazil, country blues and deep new African grooves. And Peter Sellers. Enjoy.
