Calypso podcasts

I'm back, but not in the swing of things yet, so the regular postings would not resume quite yet. Meanwhile, I wanted to compile the links to some calypso mixes and podcasts. Calypso as such is not an album-oriented music; a lot of it was recorded as singles, and even on the actual albums there are often a few good songs and the rest is filler. So mixes might be the best way to listen to calypso - if the person has a fine enough taste to like calypso, I guess you can trust him with the choice of songs.

Here are a few:
J'Ouvert Morning Calypso series on Pod-O-Matic:
Vol. 1, Vol. 2, Vol. 3, Vol. 4, Vol. 5

A great mix at, grab it!

Two podcasts from MobTown: one, two.

Most excellent offers several calypso mixes: Bam Bam (Mentomania), Big Bamboo: Calypso Picong Songs, Mango Bang Bang, War at Dirty Jim's.

  1. I have updated the Eloise Trio calypso album, as well as Lord Kitchener's Calypso With and Without Social Significance" on my blog:

    Let me know if there are other links which have expired, I'd be happy to repost anything you'd like to have.
