Because it's back to school time for many children, it reminded me of the times I was in school and we had to write about our Summer vacation. Since there is no World Music Show this week (due to a special broadcast of the Proms), I thought I'd dole out some recommendations as to what local-World Music bands to listen to, places to see such bands and other online areas to check out World Music.
Don't be alarmed. I mean, the planet is always moving, right? However, in this case, this week's World Music Show (8/31) is moving to a new time-slot. Set your watches for 8:00 p.m. ET this Saturday (Not sure what the GMT is for my global audience, but you're all very savvy). The show will still be two-hours long and it will still be filled with great world beats and awful humor and corny segues. And as they say in show business...on with the show.
Inserting New & Improved Sub-Headline Here: It's a Labor of Love
This week (8/31/13) starts a new chapter in Time For the Blues! We will now be heard at the earlier time of 11:00 p.m. and we hope you will tune in to find out what all the fuss is about. We promise we’ll bring the same great music and the same bad jokes, just now at a new time.
That’s what they’re saying maybe in the middle of the Atlantic ocean...but remember you’ll need to adjust your Atavachron. Right here in Richmond,VA you won’t have to wait till the midnight hour--as the famous song goes.
Listen: I know you've been here before. You've got work to do, but it's vacation time (or as in many people's cases, "stay-cation" time). What to do? Well, as many people do, you sort of do both. So, for this week's World Music Show (8/24), I'm going to attempt just that--enjoy my "stay-cation" while at the same time fulfilling my personal obligation to keep you informed as to what to expect this week.
