Global Music Show
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. Running through Spring 2014, the Global Music Show focused 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 — more than 60 archived below — is a live “lesson” interspersing records with a discussion of the history and context of the music.
