Chris & Georgena Taylor present Imported (airs Sundays @ midnight on WKMS-FM) or On-Demand here.

In this episode we start off en espanol, playing some Los Bunkers (Chile) and The Pinker Tones (Spain). We dabble with some Chinese pop music and some Russian psychadelic-electronica / demented Mario Paint tune… One of Georgena’s faves The Noisettes rock out; and a German singer covers a Linkin Park song in some opera-ish glory. We ❤ hearing from you:
