Henry's Bag o' Blues!

We hope you will join us for Time for the Blues this Saturday night (7/30/16) at 11:00 because John and I are planning a fast hour of great blues for you. We’ve got so much good music, I’m not really sure we can get it all into one hour.

I gave John the week off with regards to writing this week’s blog. Why? Because that’s the kind of guy I am. Plus, to paraphrase the great Otis Blackwell, “this is MY show.” At least this week.

Conquering Rulers, Turkish Freakout And Some Fuzzy Bananas

On the next episode of the World Music Show (7/30), we'll tackle beats from the New York salsa band Los Hacheros, sample some new cuts of Fado from Ana Moura, and go back in time to hear some fuzzy Brazilian and Turkish guitar from a variety of bands, circa 1960s through 70s. But that's just the promo teaser for the show. For more meat, for more of the gooey good stuff, for more of the filler, you'll have to break open the crust, lift the top layer of bread, break that Oreo cookie open in order to learn more.

Hit the Frappe' Button

In one of my early explanations of what the gist of the World Music Show is, I compared it to hitting the frappe' button on a blender. Why frappe? Well, it sounds better than the shred or the simple chop button, right? On this week's World Music Show (7/23), I think the show comes close to mimicking this metaphor. That said, you can guess that it's going to be a mixed up show.

Wake Up!

Look, I don't mean to pummel your senses down with the fact that it's been uber hot here in RVA. But when it gets like this, my mind tends to become rather sleepy. And with that in mind, some of the tracks for this week's World Music Show (7/16) are of a dreamy and sleepy nature.
