Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown! RCBS' 10th Blues Challenge!

We hope you’ll join us this Saturday night (6/7/14) at 11:00 on Time For The Blues as Henry and I are sampling some music with connections to the Bayou State. A lot of great music emanated from here, and we’re bringing you just a small sample. Also, the River City Blues Society of VA's 10th Annual Blues Challenge is this Sunday (6/8/14)!

About this Week...

Ever have one of those weeks in which there is just too much going on and time just seems evaporate before your eyes? Well, I'm having one of those weeks. But, despite that type of week, I wanted to make sure that you knew what to expect on this week's World Music Show (6/7/14). Well, as I used to say to my dad about what my day was like, it's "a little bit of this of this and a little bit of that."
 

A French Dip Sandwich of Sound

You know, many wish they could have traveled back in time to be part of the French heyday when famous American writers and musicians roamed the streets of Paris in search of enlightenment. And while that sounds good to me, I also wish I could have been in Paris circa 1960s when they were having an explosion of pop music--most likely reflecting what was going on in the U.S. and in Great Britain. On this week's World Music Show (5/31), we'll explore a little bit of that world--especially in the first hour. In fact, it'll be like a French Dip sandwich of Sound.

Need a Lift?

Sometimes you need a little lift. And whether it comes from espresso, an electric shock or from music, either way it's a jolt that could help fuel a dip in your weekend momentum. So, on this week's World Music Show (5/24), I hope to do just that.

Jarekus Singleton and Solomon King! Hot off the (CD) Presses!

Make sure you join us this week for Time for the Blues as Henry Cook and I are going to be bringing you lots of great new sides, some very bad jokes, and Mr. Cook promises to deliver another surprise…

When Henry and I started up this little show almost eight years ago we actually planned out a month’s worth of shows and from that time on as we’ve discovered new artists and labels, we’ve taken great pleasure in bringing them to you.
