On this week's World Music Show (4/28) we put on our detective hats and begin a tireless search for hidden Reggae beats in some classic New Wave/Pop songs. Sure, it's going to be a tough job, but with your help, we'll be able to achieve the ultimate trophy--an interesting show to tell the kids about.
Who’s next, Tommy? Ok. No more bad puns as we enter our concluding weekend of celebration with International Guitar Month (IGM).
If you are a player you’ll dig this... Jimi Hendrix would have been 70 this year and Guitar Player magazine has the maestro as its cover subject for the May issue. A lot of what Jimi did has not been widely heard from across the pond but you will on this week’s Croude--his BBC sessions.
See this woman? OK, now you MUST hear this woman sing the blues! Listen to Time for the Blues this week (Sun 4/22/12) for one of the most powerful and soulful voices on the scene today, Janiva Magness! We'll hear tracks from her new CD, Stronger For It. We'll also sample a classic 1998 outing from the Jimmy Rogers' All Stars!

True story. I was having dinner recently with a good friend and running down the list of guests on the Croude during IGM (International Guitar Month). My pal, an acoustic guitar player asked what Dave Hunter’s specialty was? I paused a second, then said everything! It sounds like hyperbole but when i spoke to the author/musician/editor by phone recently, I joke about how one man could amass so much guitar knowledge and still be under 200 years of age?
