A Tale of Two Femi’s

There’s tale of two cities, The Handmaid’s Tale, and the classic Shark Tales. But on this week’s World Music Show (2/24) we have a Tale of Two Femi’s.

We’ll hear from two masters of African music from two styles that are somewhat similar. And, both of these will have uplifting messages. Plus, we’ll be spinning the World Music Wheel O’ Fun!

Unsung Heroes & Trailblazers of African Music

On this week’s World Music Show (2/17) we try and tackle a theme of music as big as the continent itself. We’ll be checking out some of the unsung heroes and trailblazers of African music.

Now, I know that this is a big task, since there are many great countries in Africa that all produce such great music. And in the past, I’ve chopped up the country into geographical bits via the compass (North, South, etc). But on this go-round, we’ll just be checking out some of the best of the best, as well as some who may not have reached your musical radar.

Bummed Out City

Listen. Before anyone jumps to conclusions, I’ll reveal the meaning behind this week’s World Music Show (2/10) headline a tad later in this blog. Let’s just go with that it sort of, kind of, almost, in a small way, reflects some tiny theme hidden in this week’s show.

But first, on with the show…

Virginia State Police Rename Chesterfield Aviation Base In Honor Of Lt. H.J.Cullen

In an airport hangar that normally sees helicopters and planes for maintenance, a sign honoring Lt. Cullen was unveiled. Members of his family, Former Governor Terry McAuliffe and his wife, State Police and Fire personnel, along with County politicians, were all on hand to honor the officer.

Magnum Columbo--Musical Detective

Sometimes I feel like I’m a detective--a musical detective. Perhaps my name should be “Magnum Columbo” or “Inspector Dorkus,”  because on this week’s World Music Show (2/2/18), I try to uncover some interesting musical tidbits not often heard on the radio. And in this week’s two-parter episode, I’ll be exploring all Brazil has to offer.

#WomenWhoRuleTheWorld & #PunkRockGirls

If only I could title this week’s World Music Show (1/27) blog “Women Who Rock!” Because that title encompasses the power and the message and the “umph” that I think this week’s show will produce. The alternative title, “World Music Women,” or “Women who are Worldly” just doesn’t have the same feeling.

So what’s a World Music Show host to do?
