Robert Christgau recently chose Greetings from Cairo, Illinois as a Pick Hit in his Consumer Guide for The Village Voice, and well-known Dutch music journalist Jan Donkers visited Cairo on November 20 to tape a radio documentary on the CD for VPRO Dutch National Broadcasting, which will air on December 1st.

Donkers, described as the "John Peel of the Netherlands," is the most famous music journalist in Holland, but has also done documentaries on numerous subjects throughout the world.

"He is uniquely qualified to hit the music history angle on GFCI and bring it to a much wider European audience," noted Stace.

"It's an enormous honor to have a person of this stature fly over from Europe to visit us and Cairo...," said Stace.
