The Mom’s Day Croude: From Mahavishnu to Mumy

As the years go by, I’m more conscious of linking certain albums with certain holidays. Listening to and broadcasting from my bedroom as a kid was challenging. Not like radio. Since the speakers were not directly positioned in the windows, lots of extra amperage was required to make sure the neighborhood enjoyed what I did. I had more direct feedback from the rest of the household downstairs.

Oh Momma!

Right off the bat, I want to clarify a little something about this week's World Music Show (5/12). It's not all about Mothers or Mothers who are musicians. Oh sure, I'll feature a few artists who happen to be mother's. But the main crux of this week's show is an ode to a mother I'm quite fond of, my wife Mariah, who happens to also be the mother of my two kids, Piper and Emmett.

Two-hours of Global Goodness

If I were a carnival barker (do they still have those?), I'd have that uber-huge megaphone out on the streets of Richmond right now. And through that funnel of sound enhancement, I'd be shouting that on this week's World Music Show (5/5), there is something for everyone. From Big Noise Funky Tropicalismo music to garage-rock out of China, the show will be a cacophony of beats. 

Vinyl in the Sky with Diamonds

On this first weekend of May... yes, there will be Beatles but not from that disc.  Its a surprise.  What isn’t a surprise to me is how great my snap, crinkle & pop platters (a.k.a. LP records) sound.  We have a saying in Croudeland.  Be good to your vinyl and it will be good to you. There is a decidedly English edge to this week’s assortment before we head back across the pond to the colonies.  Part of a sonic celebration--WCVE Public Radio turns 24 years old this Sunday.  And the Croude is now 27.  No word on how old the Cricket is.

The Doctors of Jazz at O’Bank’s Sunday May 6

I was having breakfast the other day at O’Bank’s Cafe and Grill when the friendly waiter/bartender asked, “Do you like jazz?”  That sounded like a trick question*, so I hesitated by saying “Umm…,” when he followed up with, “Let me rephrase that.  Do you like New Orleans jazz?”  I answered with a resounding “Yes!”  The reason he asked is because traditional New Orleans jazz band The Doctors of Jazz will be performing a jazz brunch at O’Bank’s this Sunday, May 6 fr
