all foreign show july 6, 1776

once a year, as close as we can get to the fourth of july, air pOwer has a show devoted to all foreign music.  most of us come from somewhere else, ancestors migrated here, we’ve all stayed, we’re not going back.  so, while the american flags, bunting and shotguns are being put away until our american loyalty is challenged again, and, while the lake is full of firework wrappers, sulfur and whatever else was dumped in there over the long weekend, we celebrate the rest of the world.  no english lyrics involved at least not intentionally.  every year a few english words sneak in (we’ve got no wall to protect us, just a lazy radio programmer half-asleep at the switches).  this year a few snuck in while enjoying the  charms of the otherwise-japanese version of i’ll follow him.
