A Musical Love-Fest of Local & Newness Awaits

When I spin the big wheel o’ fun on this week’s World Music Show (4-22), I foresee the prize needle landing on both a mix of new music as well as some local World Music. How do I know this? I rigged the board—that’s right. I write the rules of this musical love fest—that’s just how it goes. So sit back, buckle up and get your fingers poised to spin the wheel (because that’s all people want to do, right? Spin?).

Now, here’s the run down of how the slots are going to filled. First up , for all the new music sections, we’ve got artists like:

Unwrapping the Freshness

Ah, can you smell that? That’s right—it’s the freshness of new music that’s going to hit the airwaves on this week’s World Music Show (4/8). If radio or streaming had the power of “smell-o-vision,” then you’d be able to bask in the smell of newly unwrapped CDs. But sadly that app and the ability to smell new digital downloads are not within our grasp yet.

Stranger Things

There have been some strange things in the world of World Music. Sure, some happen to think that World Music involves the spiritual, ethereal sounds of wind chimes, chants and handclaps led by people wearing burlap sacks or something of the sort. However relevant or not those styles of World Music are, in my book, I seldom give them any credence. But more importantly, what does this have to do with this week’s World Music Show (3/11)?

In a word: Zilch.

Get Under the Covers

So what do you get when you cross Hall & Oates, U2, Lou Reed and Morrissey? Well, you get a taste on what to expect for this week’s World Music Show (1/7).

That’s right, on this week’s show, we’re going to take a journey into one of my favorite realms—that of the World Music cover tunes. The entire show is dedicated to the fine art of songs that were redesigned with World Beats. From classic Pop tunes to some alternative tracks, these covers are going to hit almost every genre you can think of.
