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.
The World Music Show
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!
At first glance of the title for this week’s world famous blog (ok, that’s a stretch, and it’s only in my mind), you’d think that I work at a PBS affiliated station. Well, I do and in fact our address is on Sesame Street. So, with that in mind, on this week’s World Music Show (8/26), part of theme will be to celebrate the famed letter L.
It’s amazing to me how many themes I can squeeze out of the idea of “world” and “travel.” For instance, on this week’s World Music Show (8/19), we’re going to be taking some nomadic travels.
This is thanks in part to some new music from a band who, after a 10-year-hiatus, has a new CD out and in which they describe themselves as musical nomads. What could be better than that as a description or theme for this week’s show? It’s hard to beat.
So, be prepared to have this theme beaten to death on this week’s show—well, ok, it won’t be too bad.
