Isn’t it just amazing how ‘smooth’ stays with us? And while the world of radio is always changing, it remains one of the most intimate ways of making musical connections. That's one of the things I love the most about it.
We’re all learning how important those connections are these days, and the value of the relationships that our smooth format continues to grow – even after 25 years. And while our favorite radio sounds are currently on hiatus, I can’t help but think that there’s still more to come.
So first, thank you so much for all of your messages: the past weeks have been absolutely amazing with your thoughts, questions and words of support. They are a testament to the power of the music we love and the role it plays in our daily lives.
Happily, The Sounds of Brazil hasn’t lost a step: We’ve been streaming the show since 2000 in crystal clear digital and you can enjoy it anytime, anywhere – we have apps for that!
We’re ‘Crossing Borders’ and celebrating birthdays with Bebel Gilberto and Tania Maria this week, and there’s a rare peek into the birth of Bossa Nova when our Brazilian Minute captures the story of Carlos Lyra. Plus Jorge Vercilo and sax great Leo Gandelman with our video of the week when you dive into our webstream 24/7 at www.connectbrazil.com
You’re more than welcome to stop by anytime, and I hope you will. You’ll see me here frequently, too - along with Rick O'Dell, Loni Taylor, Bill Cochran and Alicia - and I’ll be sure to post a ‘Tuesday Rewind’ every week – so we can look forward to sharing a smile – and a song! (Scott Adams)
