Duets, Duos & Double Whammys

So, once in awhile I like to do theme shows. Thus is the case for this weeks World Music Show (5/23). And, as eluded to in the head line for this week, it's all about the doubles...well, for the most part. We'll see how this adventure ends up because in this weeks particular theme, we'll run the gamut of frivolity. However, there may be a bump in the road of this challenge along the way.

B.B.’s Blues: A B.B. King Appreciation!

A very sad day in the blues world...please join us in appreciation and rememberence of the legendary B.B. King with special airings of “B.B.’s Blues: A B.B. King Appreciation” tonight at 7:00 p.m. on Jazz with Peter Solomon and again tomorrow (5/16) on Time for the Blues at 11:00 p.m. Another programming note: Fresh Air will feature Terry Gross’s 1996 interview with B. B. this afternoon at 3:00 p.m.

A Smorgasbord of Random Tunes

Sometimes things boil down to this. Once in awhile, you just have to shuffle, as in hit the shuffle button. Perhaps this is true not only on your portable musical player of choice, but in life as well. You can get stuck doing the mundane. So on this week's World Music Show (5/16), we'll attempt to launch ourselves off of the lazy Susan of normality.

The Professor’s Picks: Southside; True & Blue

Welcome to The Professor’s Picks, a new column designed to supplement Time for the Blues. Henry and I are always on the lookout for new material and are fortunate to receive a number of CDs from studios, publicists, and friends of the show. And once in a while, we even go out and buy some as well. Truth is, even with trying to bring 14 songs a week to the show, we run out of time and don’t always get around to playing all of the songs we want to play.

Let The Sunshine In

On this week's World Music Show (5/9), it's all about letting the sunshine in. Ok, sure, that's a kooky reference to a classic song (that would not be heard on this show), but it's also a nod to some of the songs you'll hear this week. However, unlike that classic reference, these songs won't be sappy (sorry classic song lovers). Plus, a bonus is that we'll also hear some new music.
