Talking to Kojo Nnambdi about “Go-Go Live”


The host at the NPR local affiliate WAMU Kojo Nnambdi and I had a conversation about my book Go-Go Live. Kojo went to the same Georgetown, Guyana high school a couple of years before my dad, Terrence Hopkinson. I met Kojo again at the 2011 Guyana Cultural Association’s conference at CUNY during Labor Day weekend as part as the Caribbean day festival in Brooklyn.
I really enjoyed the conversation. I love how Kojo¬† wove in clips of “Li’l Benny “The Cat in the Hat” and Wale’s “Pretty Girls.” We also listened to a clip of the Bounce Beat kings TCB. It was an honor to appear on his show.

Here is the AUDIO

and here is a TRANSCRIPT of our conversation.
