Listen--it's been one of those weeks. You know, not enough time...rain, work, music, life, etc. But, I don't want to skip out on letting you know about this week's World Music Show (10/3). However, I'm just going to bounce in and around the highlights. I will however, give you this tasty little synopsis of what to expect.
We hope you will join us this week (10/3/15) on Time for the Blues as Henry and I are joining in with Richmond’s biggest musical event of the year! We’ve got some great music lined up that’s going to rock the late night hours.
The 2015 Alexander Paley Music Festival takes place this weekend at St. Luke Evangelical Church. Mr. Paley is world-renowned for his extensive repertoire, his technical prowess, and his passionate, convincing interpretations.
It's time to take a trip--a mini trip, at least in hour one of this week's World Music Show (9/26). And if you can't guess by the large picture of Latin American flags, we'll be heading to South America (with one minor detour first).
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.
