Welcome to The World Beat:
I'm Mark Thomas your World Beat host for the evening.
I'm usually heard on the first Saturday of the month , but last week I was on vacation and someone sat in for me. So when our World Beat collegue, Ned Williams, asked if I'd sit-in for him this evening , I said sure. Ned is our African Music expert so I'll have some African music coming up in the second hour of the show for the segue to George Collinet and AfroPop
