Ok, first up, my apologies to the Milk Advisory Board (since that's where the "Got..." came from). I guess the headline should read "Get Fado?" since the first hour of this week's World Music Show (4/5) features some great Fado music. And my apologies to the band Cafe Tacuba, who are pictured above. They are not Fado musicians. They appear in hour of the World Music Show. It's such a great picture that I had to feature it. But let's get back to Fado music.
George Maida, host of The Electric Croude, once again celebrates International Guitar Month in April on 88.9 WCVE. Be sure to tune in Saturday nights at 10:00 p.m. during the month for a variety of special guests, interviews and musical offerings.
April 5: Pam McCarthy

Trombonist Steve Davis will be featured in the next concert in the Richmond Jazz Society Guest Educators Series Tuesday evening, April 1 at 7:00 p.m. at Capitol Ale House at 623 East Main Street. Davis was the last musician to join Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and discusses the lessons he learned with Blakey's band and from two of his other important musical mentors - Jackie Mclean and Chic Corea.
So I'm not sure how to say this. And I'm not sure I'm ready to share this bit of information with a worldwide audience, either. But, here it goes. I have a problem. I have this addiction to Brazilian and Latin music. I mean, not a World Music Show goes by in which I don't try to sneak a song or two (or three or four) into one of the two hours. Then, there are other times in which I throw caution into the wind and pretty much dedicate a good chunk of the show to this spectrum of music.
We hope you will join us this week (3/29/14) on Time For The Blues because Henry Cook and I plan to unleash some great sides and we’ve got a special guest who we’ve been listening to for some time and now he’s finally going to join us in the studio--local harpmaster Li'l Ronnie Owens! We'll also hear more from recent CDs by Buddy Guy as well as Tommy Castro and the Painkillers!
