Road Trip Summer Playlist

Roll down the window and stick your hand out like you’re flying a plane, because I want to bring you my summer road trip playlist that’s the alternative to what you may have plugged into your cassette deck over the past years. I love road trips and one of the best parts about taking them, besides the pit stops at some dive-diners and oddly named historical-themed road markers, is the music I get to play. In the past, my soundtrack has consisted of music from a certain era or genre (hello high school/college playlist).

Carol Lipnik : Queen of NY Eclectica

As a musical artist if you're submitting your material for a CD sampler or elsewhere, its not unusual to be asked on a form how do you describe your music....folk, new age, alternate or fill in the blank.  Labels are the bane of classifying modernn creativity and that brings us to the subject of this week's primary focus.  The ever unpredictable and always challenging Carol Lipnik

The Celebration of Random World Holidays

When I was looking at the calendar for June for some ideas for the World Music Show, I noticed that besides Father's Day (in which they'll be a great World Music Show), there were some very interesting holidays happening around the globe. So this week's World Music Show (6/4) is going to a celebration of Random Holidays. For instance, in Australia, there is Foundation Day; in New Zealand, the Queens Birthday; in Ireland, there is a bank holiday and there is also World Environment Day on June 5th.

An American Saturday Night

This particular holiday weekend is perhaps one of the most bizarre for me.  The commercial media ratio of advertising to awareness of Memorial Day is....well, I dont' have to tell you.  My late Dad was a vet of WWII.  So are some of my fave departed uncles who also served overseas.  At the oddest moments I'll sometimes think of them under fire with the hell of war surrounding them.  Because of what they did I'm here.  And the domino effect through the decades is this radio station, the weekly Croudes you tune in and our general way of life.
