Sadly or maybe happily, this isn’t a Hollywood premier. But on this week’s World Music Show (4/29), the stars of the show (besides you, the listener of course), will be plentiful and magical.
The World Music Show
When I spin the big wheel o’ fun on this week’s World Music Show (4-22), I foresee the prize needle landing on both a mix of new music as well as some local World Music. How do I know this? I rigged the board—that’s right. I write the rules of this musical love fest—that’s just how it goes. So sit back, buckle up and get your fingers poised to spin the wheel (because that’s all people want to do, right? Spin?).
Now, here’s the run down of how the slots are going to filled. First up , for all the new music sections, we’ve got artists like:
So what happens when an accordion, a sitar, a tabla drum and a kora all walk into a bar? I’m not sure, but on this week’s World Music Show (4/15), we’ll explore each of these unique instruments.
It’s time to dust off that Sherlock cap, grab your pad & pen so you can help me investigate and roll the dice on our musical game of Clue.
Ah, can you smell that? That’s right—it’s the freshness of new music that’s going to hit the airwaves on this week’s World Music Show (4/8). If radio or streaming had the power of “smell-o-vision,” then you’d be able to bask in the smell of newly unwrapped CDs. But sadly that app and the ability to smell new digital downloads are not within our grasp yet.
Sure, April First—April Fool’s Day, happens to be one of my favorite days of the year—you can guess that I’m quite the prankster. However, on this week’s World Music Show (4/1), the tracks we’ll hear will be no joke, in terms of world beat sounds that will make you happy to be alive (or, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch). However, because of stern upbringing in a family full of jokesters, you can expect the usual, albeit poorly executed attempts at some humor.
