BwGN AM Mixtape #142 – The (21st) one while Loose Canon Listening Club is on hiatus

For this week's mixtape, I did yet more digging into my collection for music I haven't played much since I resurrected Boy with Girl's Name Morning Mixtape in May. We'll hear artists from Bahrain, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, Tunisia, Turkey, Yemen & Zimbabwe. I left so much music on the cutting room floor that we'll just pick this line of exploration right back up next week too.
