Betto Arcos is a frequent guest on weekends on All Things Considered. He's a world-music DJ for KPFK in Lost Angeles, but he travels all over the place in search of cool music. Arcos recently returned from Portugal with a stack of music to share with NPR's Arun Rath, including a song by someone he considers to be the Frank Sinatra of fado. Hear the conversation at the audio link, and check out the music below.
