March 28, 2009 - Hey Mama Here Comes the Free Kick
Springtime has definitely arrived in Montreal. The birds are singing, the doggie doo is stinking, the students are scrambling, and the temperature is rising. Isn't it nice to peel off all those layers of extra clothing and strut your stuff on the Main?

Ringing in the spring, Freekick payed tribute to New Orleans blues, soul and funk legend Eddie Bo (pictured here), who, sadly, passed away a few weeks ago. With a career that spanned five decades, there was no lack of choice for last week's edition of your favorite radio show. You can find more information about this incredible musician (and lots of his music to download) over on the great Funky 16 Corners and Home of the Groove blogs.

Listen for the sweet sounds of Eddie Bo, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Roger & the Gypsies, Inez Cheatham, James Black, Arnaldo Antunes, MC5, Jethro Tull, Mutantes, Simply Saucer, Marcelo Birck, Shiina Ringo, Usha Uthup, Getatchew Mekuryah, Asmahan, Land of Kush, Can, Annabelle Chvostek, Pascal Comelade, Momus, Alamaailman Vasarat, and The Orb.

Unfortunately, the CKUT servers are still kinda messed up, but we'll be posting links to our archived shows as soon as they're up and running again. In the meanwhile, browse our archive of past shows on our very own website... Check out what we did in 2006!

You can also kick around in
