Hello again!

It’s a roll of the dice this time of year. The weather can bring a stormy chill or drenching rains.

Or it might bring 70’s and sunshine, making the weatherman instantly irrelevant.

Hi, It’s Scott Adams, welcome!  I say that Bossa Nova is the cure for the weather’s unpredictability. It makes us yearn for the Sunshine Season. All we have to do is listen!

So this week, it’s a Bossa Nova Love Affair! Two hours of musical magic from the land of Samba and Sun!

Plus a Brazil Back2Back that’s sure to cause some Waves. That’s in our second hour.

So, welcome to the radio show where the sun is always shining, and where conditions are perfect for The Sounds of Brazil… 

Happy Listening,
Scott Adams
