A real treat for Ras Charles fans! Links to his last radio shows + a tribute show!

Here are the last two shows Charles did at WHRW:

3/11 http://archive.whrwfm.org/Iration%20Vibration%20with%20Ras%20Charles~2012_03_11_14_00_09.mp3
3/18 http://archive.whrwfm.org/Iration%20Vibration%20with%20Ras%20Charles~2012_03_18_14_00_09.mp3
3/25 No show

So check this: the last song Charles played on the radio was The Burial, by Peter Tosh, recorded live in Boston, 1976.

4/1 Tribute show (Part 1 begins 1/2 way though, Kit White mentions she misses his laugh).
Part 1: http://archive.whrwfm.org/Iration%20Vibration%20with%20Ras%20Charles~2012_04_01_14_00_08.mp3
Part 2: http://archive.whrwfm.org/The Good Life with DJ Homicidal Terrahawk, DJ IriShut, and DJ Robin Sparkles~2012_04_01_16_00_09.mp3

These links last for around 1 month, so they will be expiring soon and the files will vanish forever!!! Grab a copy now while you can!

(I have copies saved and will try to upload to Archive.org soon)

Thanks for doing this it will be great to hear his voice live on for future generations to hear and learn from.

I can't figure how to save these files. I just get a simple Quick time player with now download option. Is there a way to save these shows? Thanks Bill!

Earl, on a PC, with most browsers, you should be able to right-click -> save-link-target-as (or something like that).

On a Mac, it should also be possible. I just can't say how.
