2013-05-31 World Music in the 1980s

The first in a series of STG shows highlighting the world-music sounds of different decades. The 80s were when I really began discovering global sounds, so the show includes some of my early favorites plus many 80s artists & songs I’ve discovered since. I love to hear from listeners when I’m on the air. And […]

2013-03-29 New and Old Global Music

Old and new this week. New world music releases alternating with tunes 20, or 30, or 40 years old. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the old stuff — would you like to hear future shows dedicated to music from specific decades? All 1960s music / 1970s music? Earlier? Later? Let me know your […]

2011-11-04 Faves, New Releases, Concert Previews, Requests

And there arose a great music in the land, and behold voices and instruments from many nations were gathered together, and gave voice to a great diversity of sounds, though they were in one accord together for the glorification of the creative spirit. And that just about sums things up this week. The show features […]

Best Global Music of 2010

It’s that time of year…the time when the spiders disappear to parts unknown, media outlets try to guilt you into spending thousands of dollars on gifts, and eggnog lattes show up at drive-through espresso stands. Which means it’s time for the annual review of global music over the past year. 2010 wasn’t the biggest year. […]

17 September 2010: Question-asking Music

Did you doubt that Spin The Globe could do a complete show playing only songs that ask questions? Did you think there weren’t enough songs from around the world that have unanswered queries? Did you think we wouldn’t be able to find them? Did you tune in and listen? Remember, you can catch the archive […]
