I'm in a bit of a pickle for this week's World Music Show (5/28). You see, it's a holiday weekend, which brings to mind summer, picnics and the like. But to wrap a theme around these images, especially a "World Music" theme is no picnic. In fact, after careful consideration, I think it's best to remember that it's all about the music. And that on this particular holiday, the two driving forces I'm dealing with don't match.
Henry and I hope you will make plans to join us this Saturday night (5/28/16) starting at 11:00 p.m. as we prepare for the unofficial beginning of summer by bringing you some scorching hot blues!
It’s not a blues song by any means, but we all remember that Buster Poindexter number from years ago – the one with the chorus, “Hot, hot, hot!” Not many people know that was written with a Richmond summer in mind.
Sometimes trips are so fun that you have to go back for another dose. A few weeks ago we sonically visited a magical place called Bongolia. We heard so many cool beats that on this week's World Music Show (5/21) we decided to return to get another fill of these Salsa-rific beats.
