This special edition of Global Rhythm Radio was created in honor of the life of Mahsa Amini. In this two hour set, you'll hear the voices of Iranian women singers, traditional Kurdish music, the chants of activists from around the world, and new protest music coming from the current women-led revolution happening in Iran.

This very special "Weird Al" Yankovic themed blog may seem like a long-winded fanatic story about the "Weird Al" meet-and-greet experience (it kind of is), but it actually weaves narratives and obscure factoids from all around the music world that somehow connect to the Al Universe.
You’ll read about ancient Balinese traditions, desert cowpunk bands, unintentional recordings in music history, and even an interview with videographer Charley Brown, the producer of an '80s variety sketch and musical public access program called the TWIT show in Tucson, that may or may not have been an influence on Weird Al’s cult classic movie UHF.
This and so much more, only on Play It By Ear!
