09.19.2003 Dengue Fever perform live.
Fred hosts this one, solo.
A relatively early performance by Cambodian pop superstars Dengue Fever. Pretty awesome all-Khmer performance by the band, which incidentally consists of members of Brazzaville and the Radar Brothers. Makes one nostalgic for Los Angeles in 2003. Or maybe Phnom Penh in 1966. Hard to decide.
The band challenges KXLU’s audience to name the three countries that border Cambodia in order to win a free CD.
Here’s a music video for Sni Bong.

Fred interviews the band. They explain to him how they met in Long Beach and recruited Chhom Nimol. The story includes tales of the band crying together, Chhom’s apprehension regarding the rest of the band and how their songwriting process involves beat-boxing and covering of obscure Cambodian pop songs.
