In collaboration with WXYC 89.3 FM, UNC’s student-run radio station, the UNC Global Area Studies Centers launched a monthly radio program in 2006. The Global Music Show focuses on a particular world region each month, integrating both music from that area of the world and relevant expertise from guest scholars at UNC-Chapel Hill. Each broadcast is a live “lesson” interspersing records with a discussion of the history and context of the music.
This month’s topic is Asian music, and the show will be sponsored by the Carolina Asia Center.
The show is scheduled for Wednesday, January 30, 2013. A live Internet stream is available from the WXYC website, and you can listen to past broadcasts of the Global Music Show using the Archive of Shows playlists below. The audio player is believed to work on all major browsers and platforms.
