Rum Rhythms – militant merengue! Quality world music with the best dancefloor fillers from Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America. Different tunes every day. Broadcast date: Sundays from now on.
I have been involved with world music promotion, as a hobby, for over 15 years, and in a variety of different ways. I began broadcasting on Live365 in November 2006, after being unable to find a radio station, on the internet or otherwise, which had my mix of African, Caribbean and Latin music. I am pleased that my station has a following, without ever having compromised on quality. Rum Rhythms is now the no. 1 station in the worldbeat genre. My employment profile is largely UK local government finance, but I am currently a jobseeker. I would welcome opportunities abroad, with NGOs, large corporations, government agencies etc. I'd really like to experience Africa. In the meantime I an e-volunteer with the United Nations, and currently providing online support to RUDEC, an NGO in North West Cameroon. I am also an actual volunteer with three Bristol-based organisations: (1) a local history museum, (2) a museum dedicated to a former "lunatic asylum", and (3) a support group for people recovering from depression. Now to make matters worse I have been made homeless, on top of being jobless.
