Have a Seat

Look. I know it's been sort of a rough week for you, so why don't you have a seat? Sit a spell and hear the tale of what's going on for this week's World Music Show (4/16). Because I guarantee that after you peruse what's in store, you'll look forward to Saturday night and leave the show feeling happier and even more well-adjusted (Ok, that could be stretching it.)

Record Store Day: Saturday, April 16, 2016

This Saturday, April 16, 2016 is Record Store Day, the most important day on the record-buying calendar. It’s a day to celebrate brick and mortar independent record stores and the music lovers who shop at them. In the months leading up to Record Store Day processing plants are filled with orders for archival live recordings, demos, outtakes from the cutting room floor, reissues, new albums and more… anything that can be seen as special or collectible.

Out of Africa

It's time to get out of Africa for this week's World Music Show (4/9). Wait, what I mean is, it's time to get some superior sounds out of the African continent, at least in the first hour of the show. From the wonderful strings of Ali Farka Toure, Toumani Diabate, and Tinariwen to the powerful vocal chords of Angelique Kidjo, we'll be taking a mini-sound tour of some different parts of the Africa.
