Destination Out: October 8, 2017


In memory of friend Mari Potter who passed away at the age of 58 this past week we spun several of her favorite songs that were kindly put into sets by her husband Mike Gilmore for broadcast. Included in the sets were tracks from the African band Tinariwen, Hamza El-din and Abdullah Ibrahim. As well as a couple of tracks from Bob Marley's classic album Exodus. We rounded out the program with tracks from Miles Davis, Horace Tapscott and Gato Barbieri.

Mike Johnston is the host of 'Destination Out,' which airs each Sunday evening at 11pm. Mike also teaches music history courses at Delta College and Mid Michigan Community College.
