Join us for TWO, count 'em TWO special programs this Saturday (7/5/14) as 88.9 WCVE airs the special Beatles in America at 1:00 p.m. and then later at 11:00, Time for the Blues features British blues through the 60's as well as some great bluesy tracks from the Beatles! Lots of great tunes for your holiday weekend!
Sometimes the best things come in small packages, or so my Mom used to tell me. I didn't quite believe this axiom when I was younger, but as I aged, I knew it could be possible. In fact, if you take this week's World Music Show (7/5), this saying rings true. The time alloted for the show this week is only one-hour (starting at 9:00 p.m.), which means I've got to pack a lot of punch into 59 minutes. Can it be done?
Of course it can!
I've been thinking about this recently. There is a division among people here in RVA. There are those of us who enjoy mid-seasons and those of us who enjoy the transitions, as in from one season to the next. As for me, I tend to fall into the latter. But for those who enjoy the mid-season (or in this case, the still-newish start of a season), then this week's World Music Show (6/28/14) is for you.
The Richmond Symphony is presenting a new summer concert series “Summer at CenterStage,” in partnership with the University of Richmond School of Music and VCUarts. The inaugural season will feature 8 one-hour concerts highlighting the complete sonatas by Johannes Brahms. The individual concerts will spotlight works for piano and solo instruments.
We all love new things, right? From that new car smell to how new clothes feel to discovering a new restaurant, we all get a tad giddy when new things cross our path. So, imagine my joy for this week's World Music Show (6/21/14), because I'll get the chance to play a bevy of new music for you (but perhaps I should rename this week's episode "The Sound of Newness?").
Dads have been known to shake it. They've got their own groove and rhythm. And whether that groove is on target or off the mark, you have to give them credit for the attempt (at least in my book). So on this week's World Music Show (6/14/14), we're going to give Dad plenty of tunes for him to shake it to, plus we're going to feature some father & son pairings that will hopefully make fathers and non-father's proud.
