Founded by radio host, music producer, label owner and journalist, Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy, Classic Album Sundays allows listeners to fully immerse themselves into an album by exploring its context, the making of and a full replay of the album on vinyl.
This edition focuses of two albums from Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti: Gentleman and Zombie. The two albums not only celebrate his self-acclaimed Afrobeat style but also marked two pivotal moments in his life and dedication to politics and social issues. Colleen is joined by Rikki Stein, Fela’s manager, to explore the records.
