Check out Time for the Blues this week (9/30/12) for Muddy Water's London Sessions and some new stuff! OK--the deal with the picture of the lovely Yvette Mimieux as "Weena" from the 1960 sci-fi The Time Machine is that it's supposed to be 800,000 years in the future! REALLY? Look at her! There were no HAIR SALONS! Who did her makeup??!!
Sure, that's a provacative headline. And like any good lead-in, I'll stretch out that thought like a good teaser line should be. Because on this week's World Music Show (9/22), we will attempt to answer that question (or at least give the background to its meaning) as well as discuss some of the finer points of World Beat.
Perhaps you're in need of a little movement. You know, we're already halfway through September (though I feel like Summer just started), and I'm guessing that between Summer and the impending Fall, you may need to Get Up & Stand Up! You know, some up-beat music may be just the ticket to help you with any seasonal transitions. So on this week's World Music Show (9/15), I've culled together some tracks from around the globe that will help get your blood flowing.
So Henry Cook and I finally got a chance to step out Sunday afternoon (9/9/12) and catch a great show. Li’l Ronnie sent us an invitation to his Harmonica Revue (hereafter referred to as “Harmonica Hooligans”) featuring The Grand Dukes and Mitch Kashmar, Kurt Crandall, and Bob Corritore. Counting Li’l Ronnie, that’s four – count ‘em – four masters of the harp on one stage.
Ok, I'll admit it. That headline is just a clever ploy to get you to read this week's missive about The World Music Show (9/8). I mean, it doesn't hurt to be topical right? But when you think about it, what could be better than a group of people getting together to state the following platform: We like to hear music from around the globe! And we will not rest until sounds from every corner of this fine planet are heard!
