Jarekus Singleton and Solomon King! Hot off the (CD) Presses!

Make sure you join us this week for Time for the Blues as Henry Cook and I are going to be bringing you lots of great new sides, some very bad jokes, and Mr. Cook promises to deliver another surprise…

When Henry and I started up this little show almost eight years ago we actually planned out a month’s worth of shows and from that time on as we’ve discovered new artists and labels, we’ve taken great pleasure in bringing them to you.

Guitarist and Former Richmonder Randy Johnston Releases New Recording

Guitarist Randy Johnston has been living and working in New York since 1981, playing guitar with some iconic jazz musicians: the late singer Etta Jones, tenor saxophonist Houston Person, legendary bebop alto saxophonist Lou Donaldson and just about every influential Hammond B-3 organist you can think of (Dr. Lonnie Smith, Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, Shirley Scott, and Joey Defrancesco make up a partial list).

The Richmond Symphony Youth Orchestra Performs At Richmond CenterStage

The Richmond Symphony Youth Orchestra will perform a free concert Sunday evening, May 18th at the Carpenter Theatre. The orchestra is led by conductor Peter Jacobson, who stopped by our studios to discuss the concert along with bassoon soloist Johnny Willing. Johnny is a very talented senior who attends Atlee High School in Hanover County.

This weekend’s performance will feature the following program:

May in Paris or a Rhythmic Odyssey?

So, I'm sort of bummed out. Why, you may ask? Well, I totally missed an opportunity to play on the phrase "April in Paris." Which meant that if I would have been a tad more on top of things, I could have done a whole show in April with just French music. But alas, It's May, and though I missed the boat, I do have a bit of French music to start this week's World Music Show (5/17).

Stevie Ray Vaughan and Stax 50th Anniversary!

We hope you’ll join us this week (5/17/14) on Time For The Blues as Henry and I are playing some fantastic music and have more than a few surprises just for fun. If you only listen to one blues show Saturday nights at 11 – make sure it’s Time For The Blues! We have some classic Stevie Ray Vaughan and a sampler from Stax's 50th Anniversary set!

The Sun is Shining

Look. This a redo. Computer glitches happen. It's just the nature of the world we live in. So, this is par deux for this blog about the World Music Music Show (5/10). I wrote a spectular blog last week. Really, it captured everything. But alas, I didn't save it on a separete platform and when the glitch happened, the orginal blog for The World Music Show (5/10) left this Earth. Ah, live and learn.
