Stop the Presses!

Ok, does anyone say that anymore? Or does anyone even remember what that means? With the slippage in newspaper readership and the full conversion to online reading, that phrase "Stop the Presses," doesn't really hold resonance any longer. So, for history's sake, the phrase means "Stop everything!" And on this week's World Music Show (3/1), we'll steal that term, but that means we may need to adapt it to "Stop the Turntable" or "Press Pause on the CD Player!" 

It's Simple: Just Listen

I get it. I understand. Sometimes you just need a little nudge. Perhaps you're just checking out what The World Music Show is all about. Perhaps you were intrigued by the pointing finger of the legendary Brazilian musician Tom Ze. Or maybe that digit extending from Ze's hand has put you off from maybe reading more. Whatever the reason is, I get it. Just know this: Don't fear music.

Taking the High Note

When you look at that picture of Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo, you can just tell that she means business. She's been around for quite a while and as sung with a stellar line-up of talent as equal as hers. And sure, she has a new CD out, in which she partners with another great group of singers (which we'll continue to explore), but because of her majestic status, we've had to raise the bar on this week's World Music Show (2/15/14). Not that we frequently wallow in mediocrity, but upping the level to match Kidjo's status isn't a bad thing.
