The World Music Show with Ian Stewart

Listen Up, You!

Once in a while, all the cylinders are firing at the same time. Or if you prefer, the stars align and everything seems in sync. Or to spout off--as well as butcher another cliché, all my ducks are in a row. Anyway you slice up these battered and misused clichés, the point is that on this week's World Music Show (7/19), the two hours seem to gel just right.

Where are the Festivities?

In retail, they call this the "Dog Days of Summer." Translation: there's not much going on. Now, could we transfer this metaphor over to the World Music genre? Or at least to certian programming on a certain public radio station? Answer: not by a long shot. Becuase while in the outside world there's heat, humidity, bugs, and possible general malaise (unless you're on vacation or about to go on vacation), here in radio land, we can travel to whereever the mood strikes us--which is exactly what we'll do on this week's World Music Show (7/12). Let the festivities begin!

One Rollicking Good Hour

Sometimes the best things come in small packages, or so my Mom used to tell me. I didn't quite believe this axiom when I was younger, but as I aged, I knew it could be possible. In fact, if you take this week's World Music Show (7/5), this saying rings true. The time alloted for the show this week is only one-hour (starting at 9:00 p.m.), which means I've got to pack a lot of punch into 59 minutes. Can it be done?

Of course it can!
