Betto Arcos hosts a show called Global Village on KPFK in Los Angeles. He recently sat down with Guy Raz, host of weekends on All Things Considered, to discuss what he's been spinning. Normally, Arcos shares new music, but here he goes back in time. You can listen to their conversation by clicking on the audio link above, and hear the full songs below.
