Star Time #35: Cajón De Castañas

Two of the next three Star Times are special "theme shows" I've been meaning to get to for a long time, including this one. This show's got a Latin theme, featuring both straight Latin music and music heavily influenced by Latin rhythms. Spanning three continents, plus the Bronx. We even have someone from Uruguay. We never have anyone from Uruguay. We do now. (Also Sweden, but that's harder to explain.) We have seven songs from one of my favorite labels, Fania, and it still doesn't feel like enough. We also have dense and satisfying rhythm lines that keep productivity high. I like this show a lot.
