The Pan African Space Station continues to arrive... I previously posted about Chimurenga's Pan African Space Station. Back then they were doing special events, but they opened up a world to innovative and experimental African musical artists. Now the Station has gone live and is broadcasting all night/all day! (Yes, that is a popup radio player...)

From the 'About': "In a double-take on the relationship between sound and spatiality, frequencies and territories, it will broadcast from studios at Tagore’s Jazz Bar in Observatory, Cape Town as well as a satellite studios in Limbe, Cameroon and Kisangani in the DRC. New satellites will be setup in Accra, Ghana and Nairobi, Kenya during 2012."

Okay, I'm not actually positive if they're broadcasting live stuff 24/7; the site's a bit unclear on that. And by 'live', dj sets are included in the term. Right now it's some very hot jazz; yesterday it was crazy electronic/dance/screaming ladies music. And I have yet to hear Spoek Mathambo even once.

No Spoek, no listen.

I kid, thanks for the link, I predict some good listening in my future.

There's a Radio Africa iPhone app that allows you to tune in various station live (I'm assuming) - can anyone comment on how the one compares to the other?
