Hot Leftovers 2013! No Blues Turkeys--Except For The Hosts!

Escape the holidays with the too-much-fantastic-food coma, the stare-blankly-at-the-television-sports coma, and the mindless-shopping-for-whatever-this-store-has-on-sale blues, and enjoy some real blues with Time For the Blues this Saurday (11/30/13) starting at 11 p.m. on 88.9 WCVE. Henry Cook and I are serving up a heaping helping of great tunes, bad jokes, and more than one surprise. Goes great with the leftover turkey sandwich!

Wake Up the Kids!

There was a time, not too long ago, in the history of the World Music Show, in which the show aired on Saturday afternoons. And in that two-hour time slot, the music was a tad different. Sure, it was still World Music--but it was a just a bit safer. In fact, there were a few times in those seasons, that an entire hour was dedicated to playing "Kids World Music." So, on this week's World Music Show (11/23), we're going to recapture a bit of that spirit.

It's Latin Party Time! (Featuring a "Babalu"-Off!)

Maybe it's just the encroaching coldness that got me thinking or actually got my body thinking. And it's thinking that for this week's World Music Show (11/16), it had better start moving. Because when there's a cold front that pretty much stays in place until March, your body can do one of two things: It can hibernate or it can be active. I opt for the later (at least for now--get back to me in January). So, what better way is there to get your body moving than by throwing a party?

A Heart Warmer for Third Season: An Interview with Dave Thompson

If not for Dave Thompson’s new book, Fire and Wine-An Armchair Guide to Steve AshleyI dare say an important part of English music history might well be lost. For decades I’ve enjoyed the writing and singing of Steve--and have been honored to have him on The Electric Croude twice--most recently during last December.

One World, Many Cultures

When looking for a theme for this week’s World Music Show (11/9), I had to look no further than to the first CD on the playlist. In fact, you could say I lifted this week’s headline from the title of that CD. But even with that thievery, the message is actually a good one. Because when you think about, what is World Music but a vast exploration of cultures through music?
