Influence Around the World

This week, we're taking a trip across the globe and listening to contemporary music from Europe, Africa, Latin America, the US and Canada. In doing so, we're seeing how music influences itself, and artists build off each other. Sometimes, a musician will hear something from another artist with a different style and do things to mimic that and build from there. And sometimes the same thing happens with artists and styles from different parts of the world. Illustrating the theme this week are Keane, Five For Fighting, the Dave Matthews Band, Oliver Mtukudzi, Angelique Kidjo, Laura Pausini, Blindside, the Killers, Radiohead, Alanis Morisette, and Hammock. It's a lot of fun to listen to, I hope you take the time to tune in this week. Also, don't forget to come by and check out the Erinshire Folk Festival this Saturday from noon to midnight on the corner of Cedar Crest and North 13th/16th close to ACU. If you have any questions, email me at Thanks. I look forward to seeing you there!
