GLOBAL GROOVE -- The Ensign
8 am - 11 am, Sundays -- World
I’ve moved from The Ink Blot to Global Groove, allowing me to play world music from my travels in Africa and Europe as well as other wonderful contemporary world music. I also sub for The Orbit Lounge, Folkwaves, Let’s Jazz Out, Drive Time Jazz and any other program that fits my schedule. I do two Public Affairs Programs: Bird Talk (GV Audubon), and the Riverfront Program.
Having served in the Peace Corps in Kenya and Tanzania for three years, I grew to like the pulsating sounds of contemporary African music, but I also am interested in exploring music venues from around the world, especially Greek and French contemporary music, but also salsa and Latin American tunes. However, that is not the extent of the types of music I like. Included in my favorites: jazz, Americana, classical and Celtic.
Some of my favorite albums this year include Angelique Kidjoo's DJIN, DJIN, Diana Krall's LIVE IN PARIS, and the Putamayo collection, WORLD HITS. I also like anything by Anita Baker, the Beatles, Mozart, John Coltrane, Yo Yo Ma, et al.
