Sick of being sick? Sick of worrying about getting sick?
I’m with you. Am I ever. This week’s World of Music is the annual “Flu Season” Special – songs of commiseration and consolation, with a little self pity and a lot of outright outrage mixed in for good measure.
We’ll pick up a nasty case of La Grippe from the Squirrel Nut Zippers, hear bluesman Robert Cray in a shaking, quaking version of the classic I Shiver, and check in with Big Joe Tex coughing up a rude, bluesy Pneumonia. All of that and a lot of energetic world tunes to keep you moving so fast you just might outrun that virus.
World of Music is a feverish blend of blues, jazz, poetry, and world music every Monday on the Radiator, 3-5pm ET. Online, or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
