The World Music Show

Get Under the Covers

So what do you get when you cross Hall & Oates, U2, Lou Reed and Morrissey? Well, you get a taste on what to expect for this week’s World Music Show (1/7).

That’s right, on this week’s show, we’re going to take a journey into one of my favorite realms—that of the World Music cover tunes. The entire show is dedicated to the fine art of songs that were redesigned with World Beats. From classic Pop tunes to some alternative tracks, these covers are going to hit almost every genre you can think of.

Out With The Old, In With The...

For the new year I thought I’d start this week’s World Music Show (1/7) off right by playing a bunch of new music. But then I remembered that it’s only been a week into the new year, so there’s nothing new to choose from. However, due to the enormous bounty that was in last year’s crop of new music, I will have some leftover goodness that will seep into this week’s show.

All that, however, will be saved for hour two of the show. Because in hour one, I was able to get a special guest into the studio to talk about a very interesting and rewarding project.

Top World Music Albums and Other Nonsuch for 2016

For this week’s World Music Show (12/31), I’m going to take a different route. Instead of regurgitating every little snippet of what I’ll be playing (though, I know some of you perhaps enjoy the read and the ride as much I enjoy writing them), I’m going to break down my “Best of” list like so many other musical countdowns do across the spectrum, meaning it’ll be a Letterman-esque Top Ten list. If I were to include everything I’m playing this week, the list would be “Top 28.”

The Holidays—World Music Style

One of the many reasons I love the holidays—besides the obvious reasons of family, chilly weather and presents, is because of the music. And, sure I love the classic holiday music, but since I have the honor of running the World Music Show on (12/24), I get to play holiday music not usually heard on many a station or record (or CD) player. It’s with that caveat that I also love pushing the boundaries of what you’ll hear on my annual Holiday World Music Show.

Exploration Into Sound

This will be a journey into sound, or so goes my thoughts about this week’s World Music Show (12/17). We’ll explore sounds from faraway places such as Japan, Buenos Aires and Portland, Oregon—wait, what? Yes, even Portland has some World Music beats.
