On this week’s World Music Show (10/1), we’ll create a travelogue of musical souvenirs, with highlights in alternative Portuguese tunes, as well as some Rock-n-Roll tracks out of Russia. Plus, we’ll hear a melding of African & Brazilian music, as well as some groovy Gypsy songs.
The World Music Show
More than 11 years ago, my wife and I read a great book called “What to Expect when Expecting,” which if you don’t know is about having a baby. Well, on this week’s World Music Show (2/25), I could stretch or mutilate that title and pirate it for this week’s show, as in “What to Expect in World Music.” I admit, it is a stretch. And, for those who may be looking for hidden clues in this blog, no, my wife and I are not “expecting.”
Coming up on this week’s World Music Show (2/1), we’ll dig our way thru more new music from Piers Faccini’s new CD called I Dreamed an Island, which he wrote in real time. Plus, we’ll hear more newness and goodness from the bands Compass and Nouvelle Vague. And if that weren’t enough, we’ll also hear a Spanish cover band whose speciality is Morrissey.
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.
