OH YUM YUM . . . BREAD PUDDING TELLS THE STORY.  SWEETNESS IS THE KEY TO THIS BRAND NEW AND HONEY-GOOD GROOVIN' BLUE 15 - 06 !
DJZigZag HAS OUTSHONE HISSEFF!  SOME WONDERFUL NEW WORLD AFRICAN ARTISTS AND THEIR SOULFUL COUSINS . . . 

WAGRadio Management

"ALL CRIED OUT" by BLONDE feat. ALEX NEWELL HAS DIFFERENT MIXES . . . THE LATEST GROOVIN' BLUE FEATURES A FIRED-UP VERSION. GROOVIN' BLUE 15 - 06 NOW PODCAST ! !


YOU MAY NOT SEE THIS PLAYLISTED ON THE SUMMER WAGRadio TOP ONE HUNDRED BUT IT IS SUCH A GREAT VIDEO THAT GRABS YOUR EYEBALLS AND DON'T LET GO . . . THAT WE HAD TO SHOW IT TO Y'ALL - CLASSIC MAN by JIDENNA featuring ROMAN GLENARTHUR.




Not to go off on some wide-ranging emotinal tangent but while we had to present to you, our listeners, this style-fabulous video we more-than-likely won't be playlisting it.  Listening and listeners is the key to these decisions.  WAGRadio, since its inception in 2008, has been tempted by a few wonderful videos (many, it seems, from soulful Jamaica).   They've offered a wonderfully stylistic mashup of New World African cultural and creative ideas.   We dug the video's look but we were not enamoured enough by its music.  WAGRadio is primarily about music and its inherant joys, so we've had to, over those eight years, decide that the video's underlying piece of music  isn't Groovin' Blue (our flagship program) worthy.  Sometimes we have been very self-critical about the decision but in our heart knew it was the correct one.  
So, that's about as tangent tricked out as we are gonna get.  Enjoy the creativeness of this great short film.  The choon will only be heard here.
