A Different Spin

I know. It's just around the corner. That "holiday" known as St. Patrick's Day. And that's right, I gave the holiday some quote marks. I'll get to that in bit. But there's something else on the horizon for this week's World Music Show (3/12). And I'll get to that too in greater detail down below. But for those who require a quickie, or who want a just the facts, well then, here you go.

Take a Walk into Cool

Here Comes the Beat

That's right. Here comes the beat, along with Ska, harmonies and some desert guitar music. In fact, this week's World Music Show (2/20) could be titled or sub-titled: Beats, Ska & Harmonies (as a reference to the Rap band with a similar name).

But this is just the tip of the drumstick my friends.
