Options Muriel's Treasure with Irwin: Playlist from October 5, 2005 Options

Irwin's avatar View Irwin's profile Options

An hour of vintage calypso, soca, mento, pan, and related Caribbean genres - and NO reggae (or Belafonte). Sexy and saucy, ribald and raunchy recordings from the 1920s to the 1980s, and occasionally later. Hear tropical and topical chunes from the Duke of Iron, Lord Kitchener, Wilmoth Houdini, The Mighty Sparrow, Lords Invader and Nelson, Atilla the Hun, Terror, Executor, King Radio, and other colorfully named calypsonians of yore. Hosted by the mythical Muriel and a white Jewish guy from the Jersey suburbs. Click here to visit the Muriel's Treasure blog. (Visit homepage.)

So glad I've found this.

Here I am commenting from the far future -- over a decade! I'd forgotten about this segment of your program. It aired during a time when the combination of work schedule, pirates in the Bronx (ironically playing Caribbean music) cutting off reception, and lack of the facilities to receive stream or archive, would've made it hard to listen.

Then another listener-supported program I chanced to hear that was all-calypso -- recent stuff, mostly -- reminded me of the genre, and I went looking for it at the FMA & WFMU, and came up dry. Then a commenter on Ken's program pointed me to this archive, so now I'm catching up.
