Radio M: Music from Around the Globe

Tonight on Radio M we pay homage to "Possum", that was the nickname of the great country legend George Jones, who died Friday. You'll also get dancing to new music from Chicha Libre, a classic track from WAR and a 1980's club classic.

Also a live track from Chicago Mucca Pazza recorded at WBEZ.

It's a two hour musical journey unlike any other.
