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.

Let Them Eat Cake!

There’s one thing I know about the month of August—and it’s that those who’s birthdays fall in this month—like a tad bit of attention. Now, I know I’m stereotyping the Leo a bit, but it’s ok because Hello, my name is Ian, and I am Leo. Sure, I may be adding to this profile by declaring publicly or blog-icaly, that it is my birthday month too. But I do this bearing gifts.

People Let Me Tell You About...

People let me tell you about my best friend…

If you’re of a certain age or if you’re of a certain type—one who digested all sorts of TV shows from the late 60s, 70s, etc. then that opening line should ring a bell. It’s the opening line from the TV show “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father.” (Yes, I’m aware it was also a movie—ok, I actually didn’t know it was a movie until I IMDB’d it and saw that).

Friends Old & New

On the tape deck for this week’s World Music Show (6/10), we’ll visit some new friends and hear from some old friends. And of course, “friends” is a term I loosely use to just mean that we’ll hear from some really tried and true artists.
