Best Way to Broaden Your Musical Horizons

'Horizontes' with Michael Crockett

For over two dozen years, Michael Crockett has been purveyor of the latest and greatest chido sounds from Latin America. From electro-cumbia to fusión, dude has a voracious hunger and encyclopedic recall of complex musical landscapes (and their various colonial and postcolonial influences). His easy-breezy chatty style with visiting musicians, who tend to join Crockett in his musical geekery/fandom, is never stiff, never boring. When it comes to radio programming, Horizontes is an old sawhorse made anew each week, undeniably tied to the genuine gusto of its host.
