FOF #2922 – Incredibly Strange Christmas Music 2020, Vol. 11 – Christmas Boogaloo

No holiday puts it all out there like Christmas! When people from all kinds of cultures and traditions come together, the food, music and celebrations regardless of who you are can be marvelous.

Today we wrap up our sixteenth season of podcasting with our holiday celebration: “Incredibly Strange Christmas Music, Vol.11”- wonderfully weird songs we think deserve a spot on your playlist this year.

Listen as we dive into Pete Rodriguez, the godfather of Latin Boogaloo music, a fusion of soul, rhythm & blues and Caribbean music that captivated Harlem dance halls in the 60s and 70s and changed the musical landscape forever.

Joining us today is comedian Brandon Ash Mohamed, who as far as we know, is the only out gay Black comedian in Canada, to talk about his new comedy album, Capricornication, where he talks about growing up black and gay in the Great White North.
