Donald Fagen on Radio Margaritaville

I did manage to tune in the right time of day this time, and was able to listen to Donald's one hour show on Sirius Radio's Radio Margaritaville channel.

Less talk than on the Pure Jazz channel, but I could definitely get used to Donald the radio DJ. A pretty cool persona with the odd piece of info on the artist or recording.

And the playlist? I didn't know what to expect and this is what was played:

Perez Prado & His Orchestra - Mambo #8
Perez Prado - Patricia
The Slickers - Johnny Too Bad
Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band - Hard Times
Dionne Warwick - Land Of Make Believe
Mbuti Pygmies - Molimo Fire Dance Song
Elis Regina & Antonio Carlos Jobim - So Tinha De Ser Com Voce
Machito - Donde Estaabus Tu
Stan Kenton - Maria
Herbie Mann - Comin' Home Baby
Tito Rodriguez - Liza
Cal Tjader - Soul Sauce (Guachi Guaro)
Esquivel - Miniskirt
Cal Tjader - Afro Blue
Nelson Riddle - Lolita Ya-Ya
The Mighty Terror - TV Calypso
Lolita Flores - Vete De Mi

So I have this show, the Pure Jazz show as well as a part of the first Sirius Radio show Donald Fagen did this month; the one on the Totally 70s channel. Expect some sort of collective report on what these three shows contained besides the music played towards the end of the week/weekend.

Is this available in any form, from any source?
Would love to hear Donalds comments to these songs. Knew quite a few of the jazz tunes, but hardly any from the Margeritaville session untill now.
