B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU-FM, 90.5/ SAT., 27 MARCH 10

Unfortunately, shortly after hearing of Alex Chilton's death, I also learned of the passing of BBC DJ, Charlie Gillet. Along with the legendary John Peel, Gillet wrote books on music, as well as becoming the premier radio messenger of "World" music to the greater Western masses (at least in the UK and Western Europe). As a student in London in 1984, he literally "schooled" me to the music of The Bhundu Boys, King Sunny Ade and many other global artists who were emerging at the time. He also put together terrific compilations that were sold, distributed. Mr. Gillet you will be missed.
