The very last song on last week’s Radio Ethiopia was a “power song”: it was the 2048th song played since the debut of Radio Ethiopia on K-RACK on October 3, 2012. So at this point I’ve broadcast exactly 2^11 songs over the internet from Racksburg. (Of course I keep track of this stuff, I’m a computer scientist!)

I know that you’re just dying to know what the other power songs were, so here we go. (The first show was a special Peter Tosh edition, so in one sense his songs are over-represented in the list, but on the other hand, they are very powerful songs, so what the heck.)
