The World from A to Z

Like throwing spaghetti pasta against the wall, sometimes you have to throw a theme out into the world ether to see if it sticks. On this week's World Music Show (12/7), I'll do just that. And from the looks of it, I think this theme will be a winner. In a matter of just two hours, we're going to travel the world from A to Z, musically speaking of course. With 26 letters to get through, will there be enough time? Or will a letter and song be left out in the cold like a dangling participle? You'll have to tune in to find out. 

From A to C: 

Get Under the Covers

Perhaps this week's headline should should read "Pull up the Covers!" Or "Covering the Covers," would be even better. How about you pick which headline best suits this week's World Music Show (11/30)? In case you can't figure out the theme for this week's show from those three headers, I'll fess up. It's my annual "World Music Covers" show.

Hot Leftovers 2013! No Blues Turkeys--Except For The Hosts!

Escape the holidays with the too-much-fantastic-food coma, the stare-blankly-at-the-television-sports coma, and the mindless-shopping-for-whatever-this-store-has-on-sale blues, and enjoy some real blues with Time For the Blues this Saurday (11/30/13) starting at 11 p.m. on 88.9 WCVE. Henry Cook and I are serving up a heaping helping of great tunes, bad jokes, and more than one surprise. Goes great with the leftover turkey sandwich!

Wake Up the Kids!

There was a time, not too long ago, in the history of the World Music Show, in which the show aired on Saturday afternoons. And in that two-hour time slot, the music was a tad different. Sure, it was still World Music--but it was a just a bit safer. In fact, there were a few times in those seasons, that an entire hour was dedicated to playing "Kids World Music." So, on this week's World Music Show (11/23), we're going to recapture a bit of that spirit.

It's Latin Party Time! (Featuring a "Babalu"-Off!)

Maybe it's just the encroaching coldness that got me thinking or actually got my body thinking. And it's thinking that for this week's World Music Show (11/16), it had better start moving. Because when there's a cold front that pretty much stays in place until March, your body can do one of two things: It can hibernate or it can be active. I opt for the later (at least for now--get back to me in January). So, what better way is there to get your body moving than by throwing a party?
