Join us this week as Time for the Blues (10/28/12) drags out the scariest blues songs we can find! Even if they're not THAT scary, you can always turn off the lights and do that flashlight thing under your chin for effect!
Every kid loves Halloween. And you’ve never met two bigger kids than Henry Cook and Professor Johnny Porter. We love just about everything about Halloween, costumes, parties, and especially candy. Except candy corn. For some reason, Henry absolutely HATES candy corn.
Yes, that's a quote from the great Neil Young, from "Hey, Hey, My, My," but sadly Neil won't be featured on this week's World Music Show (10/20). But I like to think that Neil's words sort of encapsulate the drift of the World Music Show.
Here's an example.
Once in a while, we owe it to ourselves, to those of us who appreciate the history of music, to take a look back to what has come before. On this week's World Music Show (10/13), we'll do just that--briefly. Then we'll forged ahead to music of today.
Welcome to Short Attention Span Theater (I know I lifted that lead but it's ok--it was out of love.) In this time of multiple bombardments from a myriad of sources, I completely understand that my opportunity to grab the attention of your eyeballs -- or ear drums, since it's radio after all, for even a few moments--is precious. So, that's why on this week's World Music Show (10/6), I'll be playing some loud (Fuerte), rock-us (is that even a word?) music. All in an effort to keep you focused on the great music that surrounds us on this fine planet.
