This Week’s Secret Word: Longevity

There used to be a time when musicians, particularly some well known Rock n' Rollers, sang about wanting to die before they got old; or they captured youth and music in such a way as to think that they were center of the universe. Ah, youth. On this week's World Music Show (9/1), we'll take that theme and turn it on it's head. We'll feature at least six bands and musicians who have deftly defied this axiom and have been able to profit--both musically, and albeit, financially (I guess. I mean, I don't have access to such things) from being able to maintain longevity.

No End of Summer Doldrums Allowed

With every change of season or move toward a big event, such as school starting, there always seems to be a lull that precedes such a pending cross-over. Now that lull--if we're strictly talking about school starting--seems to come from one faction (namely the kids going) as opposed to the europhia from the other faction (namely, the parents). But a change in season can bring about the same results. It's with this conundrum that I base this week's World Music Show (8/25) around. 

Twofers with a Kicker! Our Embarrassing Old Cars--Like This One!

Check out Time for the Blues this week (8/19/12) as we pull out an old radio trick, "Twofers" and wax nostalgic over our long list of seriously embarrassing cars! See this one? Anyway, we'll play two tracks from some great new releases by Li'l Ed and the Blues Imperials, Muddy with the Stones from '81 and Richmond's own Li'l Ronnie and the Grand Dukes! Don't miss it!
