Reviewing our Electro radio stations on our Electro radio guide is very fun. First I found a dub station playing classics like King Tubby and modern hits from the Dub Side of The Moon (the dub remix of the Pink Floyd classic). Then I started listening to ClubFm’s Electro station and came across the sweet movie
David Guetta – Nothing But The Beat, the movie – Le Film en intégralité ! This has inspired me to create a page for David Guetta which you can also enjoy. The movie is embedded in its entirety below.
Listening to delicious music from Africa.1 radio on our African radio guide. And thought lets share three great songs from the greatest continent. First up is Miriam Makeba singing with lyrics in Swahili and English.
Next a newly popular Gambian Band Dawda Joberteh plays live a song Bamba Bojang, possibly inspired by Mr Bojangles.
Next up is a brilliant musician from Zimbabwe Mashasha, playing with Ali Nourbakhsh – the song NDIMI MAI. Mashasha plays Jazz style with elements from all over the world thrown in. Enjoy!
If your looking for children’s books in African languages we have them!

The Musical Youth from South Africa produced one the happiest songs ever which was given to me by my late Aunt Vickie. Pass the Dutchie became a hit when the members of the Musical Youth were only 15 years old!
Rodrigo y Gabriela are very excited (I hear) to represent Mexico and Led Zeppelin simultaneously with their excellent version of Stairway to Heaven. Rodrigo y Gabriela are two of greatest guitarists ever.
Bob Marley was the greatest Reggae artist ever and is one of my all time faves. Reading Catch a Fire the biography about Marley changed me. Bob was a very good soccer player, a powerful force and father to many wonderful kids. Damien Marley and Ziggy Marley (who I was lucky enough to see live) and had a loving and forgiving wife Rita Marley. As an excuse to listen to some Marley we put this post together with a few of his videos and a couple of remixes, some ambient and some dance tracks. Enjoy. PS If you like Reggae check out our Reggae Radio Guide.
