The Mailbag is Open!

On this week’s World Music Show (10/20) I’m opening up the proverbial mailbag in order to highlight some of the new music I’ve been getting. And after reviewing the depth of stuff that’s come in, I can say that you’re in for a treat.

Some of the highlights include:\

Talkin' 'Bout a Revolution

I love word play. The little twists and turns you can do with a phrase or the fun of homophone when it’s released out upon the world. I’m reminded of this for this week’s World Music Show (10/13) because of the phrase Playing for Change.

What was your first thought when you read that? Was it of a street musician showcasing their talents with a box of hat out asking for change? Or was it a call to action you see from many musicians? How about if the phrase can mean both at the same time? That’s kind of the gist of this week’s show.
