Sunday Salon: Music from Around the World

The Sunday Salon.comWelcome to the Sunday Salon. Click on the logo to join in.

I've discovered a way to listen to radio from across the globe, using my trusty computer and the web of course. I am listening to really good jazz right now, from a Japanese radio station, which is remarkably clear, all the way from Tokyo. I also good good signals from a Bogota radio station in Columbia, which plays lively Spanish love songs. Signals from India, Africa, andChina were not too good on some stations or not available in some of the cities I tried. The ones that came through were talk radio in languages I don't understand though I was looking primarily for music.

In any case I recommend Musashino FM 78.2 from Tokyo for good jazz plus Brazilian jazz, and Besame in Bogota, Colombia for Spanish songs
On the reading front, I've fast forwarded through a couple of cozies and a sci-fi thriller, read a mystery novel and a sci-fi fantasy, and am now starting a new novel by Douglas Kennedy, The Moment.

I've sent out all my holiday cards, including eCards. How about you?

I'm not a card person even though I should do it!!! The music sounds great!

I have not even thought about holiday cards this year, but I did finish all my Christmas shopping and put up my tree right after Thanksgiving.

I wish I could do that with music. I can't listen and read at the same time, so I listen to MUCH less music than I would like to!

I love the idea of listening to music from all over the globe, and need to check out some of these stations!

I have not gotten all my Christmas cards and packages out yet, but I am hoping to finish up today!

It's amazing how much the Japanese like jazz. Cool to hear it on Web radio from Tokyo!

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
