Somersaults of Sound

So, don’t think that I’m slipping you a mickey on this week’s World Music Show (12/9) since last week’s ran in a similar vein—meaning that it’s another “Best Of” show! That’s right, 2017 had so much to offer that we’re stretching out the fun all month long (save for the annual World Music Holiday Show).

With that, let’s dive right into some of the best releases that appeared on my radar this past year.

Let the Festivities Begin

There’s something about this time of year. And, no, I’m not going to mention the weather, the holiday razzle-dazzle or the childhood memories of televised holiday specials. It’s now the seasons of lists. That’s right, it’s time for the “Best of” lists to begin! So, on this week’s World Music Show (12/2), we’ll be staring the season off right on cue.

This Isn’t Beach Blanket Bingo

It’s going to be a coastal wonderland of sound on this week’s World Music Show (11/18). That’s right, from the obvious locales, such as tropical sounds from the beaches of Ipanema, to the not so apparent, such as beats from the wind-swept, craggily-rocky areas of Ireland and Greece, we’ll try to inhabit the entire spectrum of beach music.

Now, with that hearty introduction out of the way, let’s break down some of the coastal routes we’ll be taking.

Life is Like a Box of...

As the now infamous line from the film “Forrest Gump,” goes: “..life was like a box of chocolates, you never now what you’re going to get.” Well, on this week’s World Music Show (11/11), we could use that well worn adage to convey that we may not now what we’re going to hear.
