Lord Kitchener, Lord Superior, and Lord Melody, 1962.

Third in a series of STG shows highlighting the global music sounds of different decades. I wasn’t listening to much global music in the 1960s, but it was there alongside (and sometimes mingling with) the rock and psychedelia of the counterculture. Dig it, daddy-o!

2014-05-30 – World Music in the 1970s

World Music in the 1970sThe second in a series of decade-themed world music shows. The term “world music” didn’t appear as a marketing tool until the 1980s — so what did the music sound like before it had been pigeonholed into its own genre? This show answers that question, and includes a musical tribute to Maya Angelou dating even further back…to her 1957 calypso album!
