Yes, the future is now. And that future involves you becoming a member of WCVE during our Fall Membership Campaign. Usually for the weekly blog of The World Music Show (this week, 9/19), I create a well-crafted, supurbly written electronic tome about what's coming up on the show. However, for this week's blog, I'll just stick to the basics--but, for your enjoyment, I will include some pictures and along with some hearty pleas for you to become a member.
Ok, before you dig deep into your memory bank to finish the quote to the headline (which is a song reference, by the way) for this week's World Music Show (9/12), I want you to know that in no way will that song show up on this week's show (not that it's a bad song, it's just not appropriate). Instead, this week's show will be a bit of everything. It could be desert blues mixed with Brazilian Timbalada. Or it could be Asian Beat mixed with Ska.
Ok, before you get excited, this is not a blog about the wonders of In & Out Burgers. Nor will it be couples night on this week's World Music Show (9/5), which means sadly, it'll have nothing to do with love. Instead, we'll feature double tracks of some lovely World Music Artists, including, Dom La Nena, La Chiva Gantiva, Ali Farka Toure and more.
Now, this Double Double theme will be for the entire first hour, however, it may linger over to hour two. It just depends on how much love there is to spread.
For more than thirty years, Toronto-based saxophonist and flautist Jane Bunnett has been studying, teaching and performing with Cuban musicians. She’s collaporated with both established legendary performers and young up-and-coming musicians. Her current band features fuve brilliant female Cuban musicians: Dayme Arocena, Magdelys Sevigne, Yissy Garcia, Danae Olano and Celia Jimenez.
You know, a ton of shows, be it of the radio or television kind, may lay claim that theirs is the place where the fun begins. But, I happen to have it on good authority (from a certain big, yellow bird), that this place--and this show, is actually where the fun begins. So, on this week's World Music Show (8/29), I'll set out to prove any naysayers wrong. I'm not sure if a gauntlet will be thrown down or not, but we'll see.
Before the summer slips away into the fall, it’s time to check out some of the most recent releases that have hit my desk. We’re expecting a big shipment for the fall, so be sure to head back here soon, and in the meantime, here are a few things you’ll be hearing on Time For The Blues in the near future.
Sometimes it's great to just take a journey into sound through the visual of pictures. So for this week's blog about this week's World Music Show (8/22), I'll attempt to express just that. And, in another attempt, I'll try to limit the verbiage I usually give to these blogs and try, hard as I might, to just skim through the highlights. Because when it comes down to it, the best way to experience the World Music Show is just tune in.
We hope you will join us this week (8/15/15) on Time for the Blues as Henry and I are celebrating our 9th Anniversary on the air! That’s right, the little show that we thought might make it six weeks has somehow stuck around for nine years of great music and really bad jokes! (Important note about Kenny Wayne Shepherd show Friday 8/14 below!)
