The World Music Show

From Kinshasa with Love

Let's cut to the right to the chase. Time is of the essence for this week's World Music Show (5/2). Why? Not, sure. Perhaps it's just one of those week's in which I can't seem to catch up. But, for Saturday night's show, I'm planing on slowing down enough to enjoy what I'll be playing. And if you're having a similar week, perhaps you'll benefit from tunining in. 

What Makes the World Go Round?

Of course, the answer to the headline is Love. But perhaps a better headline for this week should be: What makes the world Public Radio go round? Answer: you.

Weird, Wooley & Wild

What a weird, wooley and wild show I've got lined up for you on this week's World Music Show (4/4). Maybe it's the fact that we just passed one of my favorite non-holidays, April Fools Day. Or perhaps, the reasoning behind this week's line up is that perhaps Spring is finally showing it's springy head. In any event, the tunes, genres, cultures and styles are quite unique.
