#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?

A Baguette of Tunes

I’m assuming like most cultures, the French hate cliches as much as any culture—especially when it comes to describing all things French. I mean, it’s too easy to fill up a beret of croissant filled images of all things Parisian. So on this week’s World Music Show (1/20), I’ll try to avoid using cliches to describe some of the great French music that will dominate the first hour like a shadow of the Eiffel Tower over a cafe.

Chesterfield County Public Schools Lay Out Proposed 2019 Financial Plan

Superintendent Dr. James Lane, said that like every budget year, they try to bring forth a proposal that meets school board and community priorities. “We believe we’ve put together a budget that’s going to make a difference in kid’s lives…that it’s something that our community can be proud of,” said Lane.

Beats O’ Plenty

It’s going to be big beats O’ sound for this week’s World Music Show (1/13). From an hour of Afrobeat, with a look at its past, present and future, to some classic Brazilian beats by a master statesmen who worked some hip-hop legends, to some Dub beats as well as some brand-spanking new Latin alternative music, it’ll be Beats O’ Plenty!

To jump start our foray into this magical land, you’ll first have to strap on those ear-goggles or crank up the speakers to just about maximum, since you’ll want to take full advantage of the music.

Just Chills, No Frills

As the title to this week’s World Music Show (1-6) implies, it’ll be a bare-bones sort of show. Now, does this mean that there won’t be any spark or fire beneath the beats I’ve cooked up for us? Not at all. It just means that with all the hoopla and rigermorale of the holiday season behind us, it’s a good time to just take a step back and enjoy the show.
