Episode 572 of 673 episodes

Before there was Zimbabwe, there was the “Heavy” scene. In the 1970’s, Rock music rang out from the black townships in Rhodesia. One band, Wells Fargo, became the voice of the people. Founding members Ebba Chitambo and Never Mpofu tell their story of music and revolution in the face of an oppressive government. Wells Fargo’s new release Watch Out! is available now through Vinyl Me Please. Learn more about the work Matthew Shechmeister and Eothen “Egon” Alapatt are doing to document the Heavy scene at Now-Again Records. Producer: Pat Mesiti-Miller Correspondent: Albert Nyathi Featuring Music by Wells Fargo Courtesy of Now-Again Records
