    great great tunes! I live in Mexico, but am from San Francisco and sorely miss KPFA! though now so happy can listen on my computer!! I am part of a local improv group of some of the best professional Mexicans (except me) working here in the Riviera Maya…so called now. And the music you featured today is inspiring how I can approach some of what we do that is very similar. Thanks so much!!
