Sometimes things boil down to this. Once in awhile, you just have to shuffle, as in hit the shuffle button. Perhaps this is true not only on your portable musical player of choice, but in life as well. You can get stuck doing the mundane. So on this week's World Music Show (5/16), we'll attempt to launch ourselves off of the lazy Susan of normality.
This week marks the debut of a new mini-series running within the body of The Electric Croude titled Notes from America. This new feature will concentrate on the 99%ers of working musicians--not the 1%ers vaulted across network TV airwaves.
Welcome to The Professor’s Picks, a new column designed to supplement Time for the Blues. Henry and I are always on the lookout for new material and are fortunate to receive a number of CDs from studios, publicists, and friends of the show. And once in a while, we even go out and buy some as well. Truth is, even with trying to bring 14 songs a week to the show, we run out of time and don’t always get around to playing all of the songs we want to play.
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.
