On this week's World Music Show (11/28), we'll give a musical nod to France. From acoustic to Django-inspired tunes, to even some electronic and acrobatic gypsy pop music, I'll cover some very swinging music. Plus, on the outskirts of all that, we'll hear some local reggae music from the Mighty Joshua as well as some Bombay beats.
We hope you will join us this Saturday night (11/28/15) at 11:00 p.m. on Time for the Blues as Henry and I bring our own unique spin to the Thanksgiving Holiday, the annual “Hot Leftovers” show. It’s a show that takes a year to put together and only an hour to enjoy, but it won’t mean much if you’re not there to enjoy it with us. Even our pic here is leftover from last year's show! (If you're going to do leftovers...do 'em right!)
We hope you will join us this Saturday Night (11/21/15) as Time for the Blues howls at the late night moon and brings you some great blues for your listening pleasure. Henry and I have been cooking up a fun little show and we think you will enjoy it so much you’ll want to bring along your friends.
Here’s the most obvious statement you’ll encounter today: Henry and I make a lot of mistakes.
I love themes. I love dissecting stories, plots, ideas and songs. Plus, I love twists. Twists in literature, and in song lyrics and in movies. However, only a few of these points are a part of this week's World Music Show (11/21). Namely, a theme. And the theme for this week's show is "The Long & Short of It." And the "it" is of course, World Music. And broken down even further, it means that we'll explore an hour of some very long World Music Beats paired with an hour of some very short but sweet World Music tracks.
Violinist Anne Akiko Meyers explores and celebrates the facets of love with a stunning new album of works for violin and orchestra. It’s called “Serenade: The Love Album” and features Leonard Bernstein’s “Serenade,” as well as ten world premieres from seven living composer-arrangers.
Ok legs, let's go. We've got many miles to cover. On this week's World Music Show (11/14), we're trying to cram too much stuff into one theme or idea. First up, there's the show happening this week, which has it's own playlist. And if you can't tell, the theme is about running (more on that in a moment). And second, there's a brand new function or "thing" that we've created for you to enjoy (if you're a runner or even if you're not) which is also dedicated to running (more on that later).
On this episode, we hear from a fearless neo-traditional quartet from the Carolina mountains, River Whyless--experimental, undefinable, completely original and cutting their own path through a crowded field of young indie-folk string bands. When the music is this thoughtful, this interesting, labels are impossible and irrelevant. With Ryan O’Keefe, Halli Anderson, Alex McWalters and Daniel Shearin, we invite you to spend a thoughtful and riveting hour with River Whyless.
Make plans to join us for a rocking edition of Time for the Blues, this Saturday night (11/7/15) at 11:00 p.m. as Henry and I are planning a show that’s going to start off strong and only get louder and prouder as the night goes on.
