UPCOMING:

August 26: Global Cover Songs
In which STG digs up global versions of popular Western songs. And perhaps even covers of well-known world music tunes. Your cover requests encouraged: Leave a note on the STG Facebook page, or call during the show at 360-867-5267.

September 2: Global Hip-hop
Like jazz, reggae, and afrobeat (with which it shares roots), hip-hop didn’t take long to go global. This episode will sample the influence of hip-hop around the planet, mostly as it blends with other global styles to create something distinct yet familiar.

September 9: New Releases, Old Faves, & Requests
No theme this week, just lots of great global music old and new. I’ll get your requests in, if possible. Leave a note on the STG Facebook page, or call during the show at 360-867-5267.

September 16: Global Songs of Democracy
Sept. 15 is the UN International Day of Democracy. STG will observe the occasion with songs extolling democracy (and pointing out obstacles to achieving it) from all over the planet. Your democratic requests welcome: Leave a note on the STG Facebook page, or call during the show at 360-867-5267.

September 23: World Music Top 10, September edition

September 30: Sounds of the Subcontinent
Known as the Indian Subcontinent, the Asian Subcontinent, or just The Subcontinent, the region encompassing India, Pakistan, Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka is rich in many ways, including musically. We’ll visit the region and hear a selection of styles and artists. Request your fave subcontinent music/group: Leave a note on the STG Facebook page, or call during the show at 360-867-5267.
