Wheel O' Fun Makes a Comeback!

It’s going to be a little bit of this and a little bit of that on the World Music Show this week (1/19). On what seems to be a semi-regular basis, I pull out the Wheel O’ Fun, an Elvis Costello rip-off or homage really, in order to say I have no theme. And I’m sure this ok, as perhaps only a handful of folks pay attention to the themes I pull out of thin air sometimes as if by magic.

But rest assured, even without a theme, the main gift will be some great world beats, which may actually be clumped together in some sort of coherent thread.

Full of Feelings

A week or so ago I was listening to the great radio program World Cafe. And the amazing host Talia Schlanger was interviewing one my idols (I have a few!)--Elvis Costello. And in that talk, she asked him about a quote he had said earlier about you can always get a sense of an album by listening to the fourth track (I’m paraphrasing of course).
