Notes: The first show on our regular schedule, and chock full of some of the best flamenco that I discovered that summer in Spain.
As for technical things (like the fact that there are two files!), due to studio issues, the higher-quality recording is corrupted in a couple of spots, but with a bit of error-handling I restricted that to just a couple of spots in the tangos by Estrella Morente and the farruca by Vicente Amigo. In the end, it's not too noticeable. The Emilio Maya bulería had a lot of issues, and so I've actually replaced it with an uncorrupted version of the song from the CD, so what you hear there is basically what went out over the radio, not what I recorded on CD. The 40 kbps file is technically more faithful to the original broadcast but not in a noticeable way - and the quality is noticeably lower. It’s posted for people with slower connections.
IMPORTANT: Ottmar Liebert's "Three Days Without You" was released not long before this aired on his album Up Close: The Fritz Files. You can read more about it here (check the Wiki links), but basically, use headphones when you listen to this song, particularly if you're listening to the higher-quality recording (I'm not sure if the binaural effects are there in the 40 kbps version), and you should essentially hear the music as if the band members are surrounding your head. Good stuff. A full version of this song (not binaural, though) is on Ottmar’s 2008 album, The Scent of Light, which I highly recommend - both on the whole, and for the version of Three Days, which is incredibly beautiful.
