Come to the Eastern Bloc….The el ritmo Eastern Block Party is on again on Tuesday night at Victor’s flat above RTRFM. Bring vodka and perhaps some jazz and funk records. DJ Claude will be bringing the new hi fi system he got in the West. Check out some of his new grooves at his blog post. Tell everyone to make sure they get there as with the new state restrictions and the clampdown on kooky music there is unlikely to be a re-stream…there may be some cassettes…be warned there is hi-fi and lo-fi…

Show re-0straem here (select 21 March))

HQ Mixcloud Bootleg Cassette here

If you dig jazz then you might also dig this – “Meet me at the Jazzkeller…Bring Jazz…”
