world-music

The World music and Folk shows on Rocket FM are presented by Vic Smith. These programmes reflect his strong interest in (or obsession with?!) folk and traditional music from all over the world. This year, he presents three folk music programmes (Thursdays, 7pm – 9pm) and three World music programmes (Tuesdays, 7pm – 9pm).

PLAYLIST FOR WORLD MUSIC PROGRAMME FOR TUESDAY 1st NOVEMBER

Vic will be concentrating on two parts of the world in this programme – Italy (in the first hour) and West Africa. Both have very varied and interesting roots music scenes. All the music in the programme (except one that he recorded himself) come from recent album releases.
