Ahhh. Do you smell that? It’s the smell of freshness…of newness. That’s right, there’s more new music to look forward to on this week’s World Music Show (2/11). Some of this music is brand-spanking new—as in the seal has just been broken on the CD plastic, while other tidbits of newness hasn’t even begun to reach the shelf expiration date.

Feelings—no, not that schmaltzy 70s ballad of blandness (ok, I’m sure “it” had its place in the musical lexicon, and if I were to go into my personal history of this song, then you may understand my dig at it), but I’m talking about all those things bubbling and gurgling up inside of all of us. We’ve all got them. And what I want to do for this week’s World Music Show (2/4) is to get rid of them. That’s right, stuff them on down to their deepest depths. Why? Well, with them out of the way, you’ll be able to enjoy this week’s show.
