This week, it’s ‘Songs In The Feminine Key’, 16 of Brazil’s best grace our playlist this week. It’s two-in-a-row from Paulinho Garcia for our Brazil Back2Back feature and our Spotlight song shines on Brazilian American Alexia Bomtempo.

But we’re all thinking about the time change, right? Yes, we get an extra hour of sleep tonight, but I’m more liable to binge the extra time watching Star Trek Discovery than I am to turn out the lights…

The seasons are changing and as a good part of the country deals with the latest round of chilly days, waning prospects of a glorious Indian summer, or the final surge of Tropical storms, we’re all keeping one eye on the calendar as the end of Daylight Savings Time arrives (don’t forget to ‘Fall Back’).

You can console yourself with the knowledge that soon ‘white’ will be the new ‘black’ as winter takes over the calendar.
