May 7th - Cuban Writers

Big thanks to Bobby Arellano (Havana Lunar), Achy Obejas (Ruins) for coming on the show. Both very talented writers and Cuban and their new books bring a new Cuban experience to a land many in the US aren't familiar with.

Songs played in between yammering:

Tom Waits - Jockey Full Of Bourbon
The Vanity Set - Jump in the Grave
Slim Cessna's Auto Club - This is how we do things in the country
Seu Jorge - Life on Mars
Sex Gang Children - Into The Abyss
Snog - Crash Crash
Social Distortion - I wasn't born to follow
Sonic Youth - Teenage Riot
TSOL Dance with me

Next week: Tinkture
