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!
The World Music Show
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.
There’s one thing I know about the month of August—and it’s that those who’s birthdays fall in this month—like a tad bit of attention. Now, I know I’m stereotyping the Leo a bit, but it’s ok because Hello, my name is Ian, and I am Leo. Sure, I may be adding to this profile by declaring publicly or blog-icaly, that it is my birthday month too. But I do this bearing gifts.
We’re celebrating the world of female Latin musicians on this week’s World Music Show (8/5). From all over the Latin spectrum, we’ll checkout some top-rated musicians who are distinct, experimental and just plain amazing. It’s going to be two hours of some spectacular music. And to get you ready, here’s a bit of a primer.
