Hugh Masekela

I have East Village Radio’s Never Not Working to thank for putting me on to Hugh Masekela and the song Riot.

Back in the magical days when you could download East Village Radio’s podcasts, I used to play the episode with Riot on the playlist like crazy.

To my surprise, the artist was Hugh Masekela, who I had learned of prior as being responsible for a Bronx hip hop duo's cut in 1991.

I came across a beat-up copy of the Masekela album with Riot on it.  It would not have made good listening for the show so my search continues for a better copy.
