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.
I hope you will join us this week (8/16/14) on Time For The Blues as Henry and I have a great show lined up. Summer may be slipping away, but there’s still plenty of heat waiting for you this Saturday night at 11:00! Seriously, how can you miss hearing the blues done by this legend with more nicknames than Henry?
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.
We hope you will join us this week (8/9/14) for Time For The Blues as Henry and I are cooking up a delicious mix of great blues and weak comedy! It’s the kind of show you’ll want to call all your friends together and have a listening party complete with great food and board games!
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).
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.
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.
Once in a while, all the cylinders are firing at the same time. Or if you prefer, the stars align and everything seems in sync. Or to spout off--as well as butcher another cliché, all my ducks are in a row. Anyway you slice up these battered and misused clichés, the point is that on this week's World Music Show (7/19), the two hours seem to gel just right.
