Yesterday on Ujima – Revolution!

Yesterday’s show was a bit impromptu as I wasn’t expecting to be doing it. This meant a lot of music and no guests, but Ben and I got through it just fine.

There was a little bit of content. If you are interested in following the occupation of Cheltenham Road Library by the Bristol branch of Sisters Uncut, you can do so via their Facebook page. And the full text of Gabby Bellot’s article about Derek Walcott can be found on LitHub.

You can listen to the first hour of the show here, and the second hour here.

I took in rather more music than I needed just in case. Aside from the Chuck Berry tribute, it was all part of the revolution theme for March. This is what I ended up playing.
