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
On this week’s World Music Show (9/23), I have three major reasons that are membership worthy. However, there are a few things that need to be said.
It’s an age-old Public Radio adage. You pay for the things you value—such as magazines, cable connections and coffee. But when it comes to Public Radio, which is available in many distribution outlets, it seems to be a freebie. I mean, you turn it on, or hit the streaming button and there it is—day and day out, whenever you need it.
Once in awhile I need to hear some sweeping, beautiful, “wall of sound” type of music—the kind that just pulls you in and surrounds you. You know, the kind of songs that, if you close your eyes, you can imagine being where the music was created.
I’ve got a basket full of new music to unwrap on this week’s World Music Show (9/9). Ok, wait—that’s a lie. Really, every track on this week’s show was downloaded digitally. Is that redundant? Because when you download something doesn’t that imply “digitally”?
Be forewarned—I’m going to date myself. And it’s not the first time. It’s all about What’s Happening. And no, not the “Hey, Hey, Hey, What’s Happening” from the classic TV show with Rerun and the gang, though that’s what I thought of when I came up with this title (hence, the dating myself). But for this week’s World Music Show (9/2), we’re going to find out What’s Happening!
