Join us for the next TWO weeks (1/6/13 & 1/13/13) as Time for the Blues presents a two-part special on the blues roots of the Rolling Stones as they celebrate 50 years of music history! Host and Producer Paul Ingles digs deep to relate how the blues started the group and how they never left it behind! Read on for a full description!
Wow! I can't believe that this year is at an end. Together, we've logged 52 World Music Shows! Fifty two people! These facts deserve exclamation points, right? And in that time, I've come across some pretty cool music--some new, and some "new to me." So, on this week's World Music Show (12/29), I'll rewind the tape a bit and playback some of my favorite tunes from the past year.
Join us this week (12/30/12) as Time for the Blues rings in the New Year early! We'll have some cool New Year's blues tracks (and they aren't easy to find!) and Henry might wax nostalgic about past New Year's Eves! Believe me, I'll do my best to stop him! We'll also have an announcement for special shows in January!
Join us this week (12/23/12) as Time for the Blues brings you “Christmas Blues 2012” with some never-before-played (on this show, anyway) blues-themed songs by some of the greats! It can’t be the holiday season without the blues you get fighting the traffic and the lines in the stores! If you're reading this that means we’re still here!--if you’re not, well, never mind!
To get the ball rolling, I just want to wish all of you--whatever tradition or holiday you celebrate, a joyous, restful, and magical time. On this week's World Music Show 9 (12/22), we'll try our best to showcase some of what this season has to offer. It's going to be a mish-mash of Holiday tunes that will hopefully put you in the right frame of mind.
Judging by industry sales, it safe to assume--at least in the past anyway--that Christmas music has been an important part of the Season.
I grew up with it and special special memories. Back in the day--vinyl. Samplers were the bomb. Everybody put out great long playing samplers. Even those you would not expect like Firestone Tires. And often with world class peformers. My own introduction to "medievalism" came from an Ames Brothers recording of Good Kind Wencelas--actually an after Christmas carol. Funny how 2 and half minutes can change your worldview.
