End of the week! With us in the second hour today, a return visit from Alfredo Hidrovo. Yes, it is that time of the month again, full moon. Alfredo not only tells us about this weekends Luna Llena de Tambores in Casco, but he also sings about it!
What, where and when…. The last in its current form as Gabriel has got a new job and won’t be able to join us in the future, but for today good advice on what you can be doing here in Panama. We wish Gabriel well and I am sure he will be popping up on the program now and then.
