Funk Rock Eruptions

Each week on The World Music Show little tidbits of sound collide together into a cacophony of global sound which ends in a two hour triumph of fun for your ears. And, each week, after culling through the tracks, a theme will emerge that enables me to write this blog. But in some rare cases, a theme or a special bit of tracks will stand out as something that I feel needs to be saluted and/or addressed. Which leads me to this week's explanation of the title, "Funk Rock Eruptions."

New to Me

You know that old expression "like a kid in a candy store"? Well, when I get a chance to visit an honest to goodness record store (like Plan 9 in Carytown), it's hard to figure out what to purchase. On the one hand, I'm pretty frugal and have a certain budget I should follow. On the other hand, I know that the more I get, the more I'll get to share with you. On either hand, the bottom line is that we're both winners.

Farewell to Tenth Month

There is a special kind of sonic magic that transforms October.  As the late Nick Drake, acclaimed folk singer once sang “...Autumn reaches her for her golden crown...”  The fresh morning chill in the air, the transmuting of foliage into natural blankets of color against bare charcoal branches against a purple twilight sky and the music that pervades and massages our soul.  

Tinkering Around Latin America

Coming up on this week's World Music Show:

I've always been sort of a mobile person. You know, jumped from one location to the next every few years. And though I'm currently calling Richmond home, my starting place was in California. That state is one big plot of land, and for the most part, I've lived in some of the best places that state has to offer. I grew up in Los Angeles, but also lived in Santa Barbara, San Francisco and Oakland. And one of the benefits of those cities is the amount of great music that each has to offer.
