January 3rd - Playlist Spotlight

//www.amazon.com/Nascimento-Milton/dp/B000002ND1Bridget B. here, the Saturday, January 3rd show, An Evening of Afrotainment, was a bit reflective with a little nudge on how we the people, in 2009, can be change agents.  I went back in time to play some old "spirituals" using Amazing Grace and Ol' Man River as my easing in approach to the first segment of the show. 

It was 1927, Jerome Kern created the music and Oscar Hammerstein II wrote the lyrics.  Show Boat was the musical that told the melancholy story of the hardships black people went through and the "...struggles of the time, related to the endless flow of the Mississippi River, from the view of a dock worker on a showboat. It is the most famous song from the show.  However, the most famous rendition of it, one that is still noted today, was sung by Paul Robeson in James Whale's 1936 film version of Show Boat (Robeson had first performed the song in the 1928 London production of the show and in the 1932 Broadway revival, and

December 27th - Playlist Spotlight

Bridget B. here, I really enjoy, listening to and playing for you, international music, which I strive to convey in the first hour of An Evening of Afrotainment.  My professional work as an event producer has taken me to many countries and I always take pause to inhale the surrounding culture, mostly through various forms of visual and musical, artistic expressions.  The world is large, but it still finds ways to connect us and I believe the connecting point is through music.  

I played a piece by Lura, pronounced Loo-Rah, called Bida Mariadu, off the Putumayo Presents: Women of the World: Acoustic CD.  This compilation is "...an exploration of contemporary acoustic music by some of the world's leading female artists." http://www.putumayo.com/en/catalog_item.php?album_id=231 I always preview the songs that I play and this one was just so touching that I couldn't pass it by and then I learned more about the artist...read on...

Bridget B. here, I filled in from 3pm - 5pm on Monday, December 15, 2008 and I classified the show as an "International Flight" ~ a trip overseas.  Once you were on-board, I asked that you buckle up, sit back, plug in your headphones and turn your dial to 90.7FM...we had a little turbulence at times and I gave you the heads up in time for you to tighten up your seatbelts while expanding your minds by listening to music by international artists...I hope you enjoyed it and now, here's the playlist...Oh, by the way, I mentioned a couple tunes that were from Brazil, in fact I meant to say that they were from Argentina ~ they were Tango-oriented songs...see below in parenthesis for the countries...enjoy.
