Juju Music on Radio Abeokuta

I happened to stumble across the website of Radio Abeokuta from Africa. "Yorùbá radio," coming to you from Abeokuta, Nigeria. More online audio and video streams than you can shake a stick at!

My favorite is their Shoutcast stream of Juju music. Hate to admit it, but I was up half the night listening to it— I'm getting too old to do stuff like that! You'll soon learn that one King Sunny Ade is a major figure in Juju music&mdash sort of like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones all in one. Also turning up frequently on the Radio Abeokuta playlist are Ebenezer Obey and Kayode Fashola.

I'm about as nonmusical as they come. But I rather like Juju music.
