Listen. I'm not actually saying that if you tune into this week's World Music Show (9/20) that you'll be too cool for school. But, if you do happen to check out this week's show, you may walk away with a few new tunes to hum and perhaps a broader appreciation of music from around the globe.
Join us this week (9/20/14) as Time for the Blues answers that age-old question--just how does John and Henry find the blues they play? Well, we have no order on our shelves whatsoever! Most of the time we're staring at rows of CDs and this week I'm picking some stuff you haven't heard for awhile, but should have!
In retrospect, it seems so simple.
In thinking about The World Music Show (9/13) for this week and about Public Radio in general, the gist of it all--the purpose and/or result is to expand your mind. Savvy listeners like yourselves relish on being "in the know," and on being entertained while at the same time learning a few new things during whatever program you tune in for. Am I right?
We hope you’ll join us this week (9/13/14) on Time For The Blues as Henry and I are planning a great show with so many classics you know, several great sides you probably won’t know, and even some brand new tunes you definitely won’t want to miss!
Look. Mixing musical genres on the World Music Show is not unsual. I mean, there always seems to be a mash-up of Afro-pop, Latin Alternative or Funky Salsa music exploding through the speakers on any given show. And on this week's World Music Show (9/6), we delve into a mix of Pop and Rap--German Style--by the artist CRO.
But that's not all.
Remember my World Music Blog from last week? If not, I'm sure if you look around here a bit you'll be able to find it. To refresh your memory, the title was "Women who Rock." Now, after looking over last week's show, I realized that there, of course, could have been more women featured under this umbrella. So, on this week's World Music Show (8/30), I will continue highlighting some Women who Rock--World Music Style.
Hope you’ll make plans to join us on the late shift for Time for the Blues this Saturday night (8/30/14) as Henry Cook and I are planning to have a great time with some very tasty blues. It’s the kind of show that you’ll want to wake up the neighbors and tell them to tune in (at 11:00 p.m)!
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.
Make sure to make a little time for yourself this weekend and join us for Time for the Blues this Saturday night at 11 (8/23/14), as Henry and I are cooking up some fun, frivolity, and a whole bunch of good blues for you! You know there’s no place you would rather be, so kick back and turn the volume up!
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.
