Women Who Rock

There can be two possible titles for this week’s World Music Show (8/23). One is the above, the other could have been Invasion of the Pseudo Covers. Perhaps that could have been the subhead, as its known in journalism lingo. And don’t worry, I’ll get to that “Pseudo” reference in a moment.

Have Guitar, Will Travel

So, I don't want to fool you with that riveting headline. That attention grabber was mostly for show. Because on this week's World Music Show (8/16/14), there will be more than just traveling guitar music. Sure, we'll dot the two hours with some acoustic, as well as some electronic guitar sounds. But this week's show will have so much more. And I'm sure, if you listen really hard and play musical Columbo, you'll be able to detect the guitar sounds in almost all of tracks featured.

Weaving Tango-rific Discotheque Music

Ok, don’t be scared or confused by the headline to this week’s World Music Show (8/9). On this week’s show, we’ve got a couple of different themes going on—well, perhaps we can call these musical threads, because the songs culled for these two hours sort of weave in and out of genres, countries and styles. Trying to pinpoint a good solid theme, especially when some of the songs appear to be from one locale or genre on the outside, but then turn that theory on its head, is difficult to do this week.

Fresh is Best

I'm going to coin a new phrase: Bumper Sticker Logic. Perhaps that's already a phrase--maybe I subconsiously soaked it up somewhere. In any event, you may wonder what my new phrase (that will be sweeping the nation if not the planet very soon) has to do with this week's World Music Show (8/2).

Invasion of the Strings

We owe a lot to the guitar or two the stringed instrument. Just think of all the sounds we'd miss if there wasn't a guitar or other stringed instrument lurking in the background or taking center stage. On this week's World Music Show (7/26), we'll celebrate these sounds with a few choice choices of strings.

In Case You Missed It: Quatro Na Bossa Live from 88.9 WCVE

On Wednesday evening, July 15, singer Laura Ann Singh and guitarist Kevin Harding of Quatro Na Bossa came to our studios at 88.9 WCVE to play some music and talk a little bit about what they have planned for Friday evening’s (7/18) Guitar and Other Strings Concert at VCU. In case you missed their segment, you can listen to it here. They performed music by Chico Buarque, Dorival Caymmi, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luis Bonfa.
