Ok, that headline is clearly a play on the cliche. But, I’d like to confess that I do have some “daddy issues” for this week’s World Music Show (6/16). And the issues lie squarely with me in that, being a father, I have no problem with sharing my World Music tastes and library with my kids.
Don’t let that title scare you. On this week’s World Music Show (6/9) neither of those things will happen. However, it is a reference to one of the first tracks we’ll be hearing from the latest CD by Angelique Kidjo. But more on that in a moment.
For the roundabout overview, for those in a rush, this week’s show will be filled a bit of new music, a bit of 2-Tone music, some Irish tracks and a chunk of percussion.
It’s one of my favorite times of year but it has nothing to do with the seasons or the upcoming Father’s Day holiday (though, I do have a tiny wish list of possible gifts). On the contrary, it’s the time when I cull together my annual or semi-annual World Music Show “covers” edition (6/2). And what that means for you is that for two hours you’ll get to hear some really fantastic versions of some popular and not-so-popular Rock, Pop and even Rap tunes done with a World Music beat.
