For the last five years Tony Sarabia has been rocking Friday night dance parties on WBEZ. Every week on Radio M, Tony scours the corners of the earth – and reads a ton of liner notes - to bring you great global grooves. He plays an eclectic mix - ranging from the clubs of Berlin to the streets of Benin. But whatever you do, don't call it World Music!

Tony joined Eight Forty-Eight to talk about five years of Radio M, and the festivities surrounding this milestone. You could catch Tony on Monday night at Martyrs’ for Radio M’s 5th birthday. And tune into WBEZ every Friday night from 9-11 p.m. to hear more sounds from the show.
