Mixin’ it Up on a Saturday Night

One of my favorite functions on my iPod or in my car CD player is the shuffle or random button. Why? Because I like musical surprises, especially after listening to a CD I love in its natural progression over and over and over again. So, after that repetition, I’m always ready to mix it up. With that personal admission said, on this weeks World Music Show (7/14), I’m once again hitting the shuffle button to see where the world musical nuggets fall.

My Midsummer Night’s Dream

The bain of commercial music radio nowadays is the limited number songs forced in repetiton ad nauseum. No finesse. No sense of season. No poetry in programming. To borrow a phrase, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist (or a PH.d in music) to understand that music is created with a certain mindset--in a certain time, space, intent and emotion. Its the reason we play Christmas carols in December--not August.
