Let The Sunshine In

On this week's World Music Show (5/9), it's all about letting the sunshine in. Ok, sure, that's a kooky reference to a classic song (that would not be heard on this show), but it's also a nod to some of the songs you'll hear this week. However, unlike that classic reference, these songs won't be sappy (sorry classic song lovers). Plus, a bonus is that we'll also hear some new music.

From Kinshasa with Love

Let's cut to the right to the chase. Time is of the essence for this week's World Music Show (5/2). Why? Not, sure. Perhaps it's just one of those week's in which I can't seem to catch up. But, for Saturday night's show, I'm planing on slowing down enough to enjoy what I'll be playing. And if you're having a similar week, perhaps you'll benefit from tunining in. 

What Makes the World Go Round?

Of course, the answer to the headline is Love. But perhaps a better headline for this week should be: What makes the world Public Radio go round? Answer: you. Oh sure, some funding from our great underwriters as well as from some other sources helps too. But the bottom line is that you, our listeners, help make this World of Richmond Public Radio go round. You're the gravitational pull that keeps us spinning. Because without your invenstment, the spinning would stop.

Met Opera: Cavalleria Rusticana / Pagliacci

Fri, 04/24/2015 - 10:24am -- WCVE

Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar (Giulio Cesare, Maria Stuarda, Il Trovatore), who sets the verismo action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian setting. Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci.
