Think Globally, Hear Locally

I ask you, what kind of World Music Show host would I be if I didn't, at least once in awhile, play some tracks from some of our very own, homegrown Richmond World Music Bands? Not a very good one. That's why, on this week's World Music Show (2/2), I'll be highlighting a few songs from some of RVA's most popular World Beat Bands.

Not So Bizzaro World Music

My apologies to those who don't get the reference to Superman. To explain, Bizzaro World is alternate world in which things are the exact opposite as they are on regular earth. So, on that world, Superman does things backwards. How does this relate to this week's World Music Show (1/26)? Well, if you see this week's cover photo of Bob Dylan, you may be thinking "What's Bob Dylan doing on The World Music Show?" Hence, my reference to Bizzaro World.

Ode to the Marleys (and Other Sounds)

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Gather Round! Gather Round! On this week's World Music Show (1/19), we'll dedicate hour one to exploring and honoring (at least a little bit) all the musical treats the family Marley has given us. From the revered senior Marley, down to a few of his sons (if we had more time and more CDs of the entire family, then we could dedicate a two-hour show to this immense outpouring of music). However, this won't be a "greatest hits" collection culled from simply one or two CDs. No Sir or Ma'am.

Special Beat Service

On this week's World Music Show (1/12), the two-hour time allotment that is given this foray into tunes of the world will encompass a service of special beats that are designed to skip across various styles in said genre. And all that gobbledegook back there basically means is that during this week's show, you'll hear a little bit of this, and a little bit of that, world musically speaking that is.

Numero Uno for 2013

Well, we have to start somewhere, so we might as well start here. I mean, it is show number one--the first show of Season number six of the World Music Show. And though this week's headline isn't perhaps as creative as headlines of blogs past, it does get right to the point. Speaking of which, let's do that now. On this week's World Music Show (1/5), we'll pack as much sound--both mellow and frenetic--as we can in the space of two hours.

Top Picks & Musical Tricks

Wow! I can't believe that this year is at an end. Together, we've logged 52 World Music Shows! Fifty two people! These facts deserve exclamation points, right? And in that time, I've come across some pretty cool music--some new, and some "new to me." So, on this week's World Music Show (12/29), I'll rewind the tape a bit and playback some of my favorite tunes from the past year.

Christmas Blues 2012 (We’re Still Here? YAY!)

Join us this week (12/23/12) as Time for the Blues brings you “Christmas Blues 2012” with some never-before-played (on this show, anyway) blues-themed songs by some of the greats! It can’t be the holiday season without the blues you get fighting the traffic and the lines in the stores! If you're reading this that means we’re still here!--if you’re not, well, never mind!

A World Music Holiday Package

To get the ball rolling, I just want to wish all of you--whatever tradition or holiday you celebrate, a joyous, restful, and magical time. On this week's World Music Show 9 (12/22), we'll try our best to showcase some of what this season has to offer. It's going to be a mish-mash of Holiday tunes that will hopefully put you in the right frame of mind.
