Ok, before you dig deep into your memory bank to finish the quote to the headline (which is a song reference, by the way) for this week's World Music Show (9/12), I want you to know that in no way will that song show up on this week's show (not that it's a bad song, it's just not appropriate). Instead, this week's show will be a bit of everything. It could be desert blues mixed with Brazilian Timbalada. Or it could be Asian Beat mixed with Ska.
The World Music Show
Ok, before you get excited, this is not a blog about the wonders of In & Out Burgers. Nor will it be couples night on this week's World Music Show (9/5), which means sadly, it'll have nothing to do with love. Instead, we'll feature double tracks of some lovely World Music Artists, including, Dom La Nena, La Chiva Gantiva, Ali Farka Toure and more.
Now, this Double Double theme will be for the entire first hour, however, it may linger over to hour two. It just depends on how much love there is to spread.
You know, a ton of shows, be it of the radio or television kind, may lay claim that theirs is the place where the fun begins. But, I happen to have it on good authority (from a certain big, yellow bird), that this place--and this show, is actually where the fun begins. So, on this week's World Music Show (8/29), I'll set out to prove any naysayers wrong. I'm not sure if a gauntlet will be thrown down or not, but we'll see.
Sometimes it's great to just take a journey into sound through the visual of pictures. So for this week's blog about this week's World Music Show (8/22), I'll attempt to express just that. And, in another attempt, I'll try to limit the verbiage I usually give to these blogs and try, hard as I might, to just skim through the highlights. Because when it comes down to it, the best way to experience the World Music Show is just tune in.
Sometimes I'm all about the phrases or just phrasing in general. There's something fun about word play that makes me giddy. I feel the same way about playing around with the genres and styles of World Music. So, on this week's World Music Show (8/15), I'll be doing just that--hence the header "Soup to Nuts."
And if you can't guess what the show will be like from that headline, just understand that it basically means we'll be covering a bunch of styles...a swath, if you will, of musical styles cut from the cords of world beats.
