#359 - A World Without Frontiers

Program 359

First broadcast as "A World Without Borders" — Continental Drift #287, August 14 1994. On that page you'll also find a PDF file of my handwritten notes on cue-points and cross-fades etc.

A celebration of music-making on Planet Earth with an uninterrupted 90 minute musical collage with 59 musical items.

The journey begins in Australia and travels north through Asia, across the former Soviet Republics to Finland, then down the Danube to the Black Sea. From there we head back to the Indian subcontinent, then return to the Persian Gulf, into Africa and up the Nile. After a circuit of Africa, we cross the Strait of Gebraltar, go north through the UK and cross to Canada, moving south thorough the Americas.
