Hey, Chill Out Man.

Once in awhile it’s a good idea to just chill out. You know, kick your feet up, sip a beverage or two and relax. With that in mind, this week’s World Music Show (10/28) has the perfect soundtrack. Get ready to enter the World Lounge.

That’s right, for pretty much the entire two-hour show, we’ll delve into some groovy, chill-out, lounge-inspired beats that provide a good background to whatever you’re doing this Saturday night.

Some of the highlights from our trip to the World Lounge include many tracks off several Putumayo record label releases, including:

Keynotes of a World Musical Nature

I’ll get right to the point for this week’s World Music Show (9/30). I’ve got a few worthwhile things going on. From a musical nod to storm and earthquake ravaged Puerto Rico and Mexico, to some new music, it’ll be a shame to miss.

There’s been a ton of natural disasters going on lately, which seems overwhelming to fathom (especially for those directly involved). But what can we do (besides of course donate much needed money, supplies and attention) to ease the trauma of such events?

Nomadic Travels

It’s amazing to me how many themes I can squeeze out of the idea of “world” and “travel.” For instance, on this week’s World Music Show (8/19), we’re going to be taking some nomadic travels.

This is thanks in part to some new music from a band who, after a 10-year-hiatus, has a new CD out and in which they describe themselves as musical nomads. What could be better than that as a description or theme for this week’s show? It’s hard to beat.

So, be prepared to have this theme beaten to death on this week’s show—well, ok, it won’t be too bad.

A Mighty Mighty Show

Call it what you will, but come this time of year, the heat and humidity cause my brain to get a little wonky. It's a good thing I don't have hair, otherwise I could add big hair to my conundrum. However, despite the wonkiness of the season, I am able to get solace by playing some music that fits perfectly into this season. With that in mind, on this week's World Music Show (8/13), we'll get our Reggae vibes on by grooving to tracks from Bob & Ziggy Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Peter Tosh and more.

All Dressed Up

I'd like to say that I had the foresight to schedule this week's World Music Show (8/6) around the spectacle that is the Summer Olympics. Sure, I can see it now, a full hour or two of Brazilian music; me spinning the tunes while wearing my Carnaval outfit. The list could go on an on. However, this week's show was centered around another spectacle--my birthday, and the upcoming BirthdayBash (Friday, August 5).
