Ginger VanWagonerHost, Rhythm World
I started my show in 2000. I recall it was shortly after the passing of Brother Asaiah (Bates), for those who have lived here long enough to remember this icon of peace and unity. I dedicated that first show to his memory.
In the beginning, I explored the stacks of the radio station library in the "World" section to bring music from around the world, but because I'm a fan of jazz, pop, rock, soul, R&B, alternative, singer-songwriter, dance, etc., I branched out to include those genres as well. Often times, my kids and grandkids have introduced me to some new music, so I try to include new music from many different sources.
Over the years, I have learned new technology and have expanded my music library to include almost 10,000 songs that I can access on my computer or IPod. Sometimes I have a particular theme that piques my interest, so I try to follow that thread to include as many genres as possible. But what really appeals to me is music with a great rhythm to drive the music.
I hope you'll join me on Mondays (about 2-3x per month) from 7- 9 pm on Rhythm World!
