Sure, I know that St. Patrick’s Day lands on the same day as this week’s World Music Show (3/17). But for some reason I decided that on this week’s show it’d be great to dance to some Latin music. Oh sure, we’ll “celebrate” the holiday with some Irish music, but that won’t happen until hour two.
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:
Sure, April First—April Fool’s Day, happens to be one of my favorite days of the year—you can guess that I’m quite the prankster. However, on this week’s World Music Show (4/1), the tracks we’ll hear will be no joke, in terms of world beat sounds that will make you happy to be alive (or, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch). However, because of stern upbringing in a family full of jokesters, you can expect the usual, albeit poorly executed attempts at some humor.
For the new year I thought I’d start this week’s World Music Show (1/7) off right by playing a bunch of new music. But then I remembered that it’s only been a week into the new year, so there’s nothing new to choose from. However, due to the enormous bounty that was in last year’s crop of new music, I will have some leftover goodness that will seep into this week’s show.
All that, however, will be saved for hour two of the show. Because in hour one, I was able to get a special guest into the studio to talk about a very interesting and rewarding project.
There's plenty of room for you to hop aboard the mobile musical camel on this week's World Music Show (4/23). From some really great desert music by one of the best rated guitarists in the world, to some classic Juju tunes as well as some lost and found Cuban music, this week's show should have something for everyone, whether you like to ride camels or not.
