Global A Go-Go is a weekly two-hour world music radio program that I've been hosting since 2004. It's produced live in the studio and can be heard on both the FM radio band and as a webstream simulcast. It is rebroadcast on other radio stations, and it's available as a podcast as well.

Global A Go-Go originates in the studios of WRIR Richmond Independent Radio 97.3 FM in Richmond, Virginia, USA, from which it is broadcast live every Sunday from 1 to 3 PM Eastern time USA. A live broadcast has a certain energy and realness that's hard to duplicate in any other format -- that's what I'm aiming for each week.

In addition to broadcasting at 97.3 FM in Richmond, WRIR simulcasts its programming on a webstream. So if you have a broadband connection and a media player, you can listen live to Global A Go-Go from anywhere in the world.

Global A Go-Go is rebroadcast on seven radio stations: CKDU 88.1 FM in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada; CKUW 95.9 FM in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada; KBOG 97.9 FM in Bandon, Oregon, USA; KRFP Radio Free Moscow 92.5 FM in Moscow, Idaho, USA; WMNB 107.1 FM in North Adams, Massachusetts USA; WXDR 98.9 FM in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA; and the internet radio station Caribriddims International at http://www.caribriddims.com. The program is available to be aired by any non-profit radio station free of charge via the A-Infos Radio Project, also known as Radio4all.net.

There's a comprehensive online archive of Global A Go-Go programs (I'm not kidding about it being comprehensive -- the recordings go all the way back to August 25, 2004) here: http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/series/Global+A+Go-Go. These recordings can be downloaded for your listening pleasure, and you can receive Global A Go-Go every week as a podcast.

In addition, WRIR's website has a listening portal that allows you to stream any program for two weeks after it's been aired. You can find the listening portal here: http://wrir.org/listen
