World Music Show

The World Music Show with Ian Stewart
Saturdays at 8:00 p.m.
The World Music Show skips around the continents in search of modern (and classic) beats with the hopes of bringing the world closer together. Ian Stewart delves into styles such as Bossa Nova, Reggae, Afro-beat and Japanese pop, and explores regions or countries, such as Brazil, France and Asia to hear the sub-texts offered up from these areas. Plus, the show always showcases local (and American-style) World Music. The motto of The World Music Show is “Don’t Fear Music.” On Twitter @wcveworldmusic.

You're the gravitational pull that keeps us spinning. Because without your invenstment, the spinning would stop.

Good Evening Mr. & Mrs. America and to All the Ships at Sea!

This week's headline picture almost says it all. I mean, look--there's the radio tower, the signal and the words FM (we'll get to the band in a moment).

And as for the headline, well that's a reference to radio reporter/commentator Walter Winchell (his actual radio opening was: "Good evening, Mr. and Mrs.
