I air tracks on the radio and report playlists to Folk DJ, NACC Radio Charts, and WBGU Facebook. With few exceptions, I do not play rock on my Folk Show, which is later rebroadcast on KCIW in Brookings, OR. For the World Music Show, with certain exceptions like reggae, I prefer not to play songs in English from places where English isn't native or official. So if you're in France, for example, please don't send a song in English unless 1) it's reggae or 2) you're from a country like Nigeria, India, South Africa, Philippines, where English is commonly spoken but not the majority first language. And I share music with the DJ of "Musics of the World" at WXUT, 88.3 in Toledo, Ohio.
