Join us this week (9/21/13) as John and I share our blues wish list with you on Time for the Blues! Not only will you hear tracks from one of Buddy Guy's best,"Living Proof" but also some amazing performances that we're sure you'll want on YOUR wish list! Here's hoping that all your wishes come true...
If you're a knowledgeable music listener who remembers various lyrics and good writing, then you may recognize this week's headline. Coined (or in this case borrowed) from a song by the Beastie Boys, this week's World Music Show (9/14) will take that line of thought and actually perform a musical experiment of sorts--at least in the first hour.
Join us this week (9/14/13) as Time for the Blues brings out new stuff from Smokin' Joe Kubek & Bnois King and we're also featuring the legendary Delbert McClinton from a classsic 1997 CD! We've been finding so much great stuff lately that we can't contain ourselves! Another reminder--we're now on Saturdays at 11:00 p.m. so don't miss the fun!
Howard Levy is one of the most creative and innovative musicians on the planet. This multiple Grammy winner and harmonica master also knows his way around the 88’s. And his National resophonic guitarist partner Chris Sielbold is always in the right place at the right time. Sit back and experience a full hour of the artistry of Howard Levy and Chris Sielbold.
That title is a line from reclusive billionaire Harold Finch to an NSA analyst running for his life--for asking too many questions about a machine capable of keeping tabs on all americans--while technically not violating Fourth Amendment rights. Both TV characters are fictional from the CBS series called Person of Interest. There is a parallel with real-life Edward Snowden--except this episode (No Good Deed) of the series came out years before our awareness of Snowden.
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.
