Why does music scare some people? I mean, I can understand when violent or degrading lyrics are used. And that's not really scary, but rather a matter of either personal taste or a poor taste in musical expression by the artist. What I'm talking about is when new or foriegn beats are heard or when the lyrics heard are sung in a language other than what someone may be used to.
Join us this week for Time for the Blues (4/1/12) as we're featuring Peter Green, the originator of Fleetwood Mac! We'll also sample some of the later career of legendary guitarist Mike Bloomfield as well as some new stuff! For a treat, we'll dip into our mailbag here--your questions are way better than our answers!
Trade show people wanting to showcase their guitar goods have the NAMM conference for gear and mingling each winter... the rest of us, like yours truly, eagerly await Guitar Player magazine in our mailboxes each month. A late bloomer on the 6 string, I began reading it a couple of years before I began to play in the late 1970s. And its still my periodical of choice. Unlike many institutions that seem to worsen with age, Guitar Player keeps getting better.
Greetings one and all. Now's the time to engage in the fun of this week's World Music Show Blog (3/24). The words that follow will attempt to entice you into tuning in to the show. You'll be thrilled with the use of adjectives and deft descriptions of the artists that will punctuate a strong and solid show. Plus, to titilate your ears, you can even hear a snippet of sound by clicking on the audio bar below. With this combination, you will hopefully set your clock radio alarm to remind you to tune in.
And away we go...
What does Mississippi have to do with steak bones? No, we’re not talking springtime cook outs here--this is Time For The Blues not "Cookin’ With Henry".

Bad grammar but great music, so find out what’s up our sleeve this week.
