Those include Japan, Nepal, India, Ecuador, the Philippines, Pakistan, El Salvador, Mexico, Turkey, and Indonesia — and we hear music from most of these and a few bonus quake zones this week, along with some concert previews and new releases to round out the show.

World Cup 2015-034 - www.NWexposure.comTwo days after this show aired, I was in Canada with 53,000 close personal friends cheering an amazing World Cup victory for team USA. Was Carli Lloyd listing to the show archive in her headphones as she warmed up before her unprecedented hat trick? I’m sworn to secrecy. But this show will certainly inspire you.
