Not Stale Leftovers
Thanksgiving. A time for family, rest, and all that food. And with all that food comes leftovers. On this week's World Music Show (11/26), the show will feature some choice musical leftovers. Though these tracks have been played on the show before, their freshness is sure to please anyone who is need of extra servings.
And since it's a holiday weekend, this diatribe will be brief and to the point. Kicking off the first hour, you'll hear some Soweto Street Music by some talented guitar players from South Africa. And you'll hear some Funky Tropicalismo music from a place just outside of London called the Mambo Inn.
Also featured in this time slot, some live music from both Paul Simon and Bob Marley. The song from Simon will be from his historic 1991 concert in Central Park. I figure it's good to hear some live music during the start of the holiday season. And speaking of Simon and Marley, I'll feature a song Simon recorded with Marley's son, Ziggy Marley. The song is off of Ziggy's "Family Time" CD.
Plus, look for songs from Lo * Jo, Orchestra Baobob and Pizzicato Five.
In hour two, I'll begin the show with a really cool song by iconlast Beck, from a song off his album "Guero." And mixed in this hour will be songs from The English Beat, David Byrne and Madness.
The World Music Show will be sure to fill your ears with sweet gooey world music, which means all the flavor with no tummy ache. The show aires Saturday night at 10pm. You can follow me on Twitter, find me by searching: @wcveworldmusic Also, look for my Holiday Gift Guide coming soon.
