A Thankful Message From Connect Brazil

Wishing you are yours a blessed Thanksgiving Day! From your musical friends at Connect Brazil. (Click for more)

Thanksgiving Day marks the beginning of our 9th year for our ‘live’ streaming station.

I created Connect Brazil for Brazilian music fans like you and to support the musicians who create the music we love.


Connect Brazil took a big step forward on Thanksgiving Day, 2014. That’s when this ‘always live’ streaming station made its debut.

Launch day was chosen with purpose: Thanksgiving reminds me of how grateful I am to be able to do what I love and to be able to share it with you.

I am thankful, too that our streaming station has grown to become America’s top independent choice for the best of Brazilian music. Our playlists bring you the best of Bossa Nova, Brazilian jazz, and crossover hits from both sides of the equator.

Thankful, too for our amazing writers who add depth to your listening experience with world-class feature stories like this:

Broadcasting from our Chicago studio, our streaming station brings you a unique line-up of quality programming:

  • The Midday Show with Scott Adams (9 am to 3 pm US Central, M-F),
  • ‘Quiet Nights’ 8 pm to midnight, M-F (Brazilian jazz)
  • Bossa Nova Breeze, Saturdays 24 hrs.
  • The Sunday Brazilian Brunch, 5 am, 9 am, 2 pm and 8 pm, Sundays
  • The Sounds of Brazil’s weekly show, 7 am, 3 pm, 6 pm and midnight, daily.
  • Brazil Back2Back, M, W, F, top of the hour at 11 am 2 pm and 5 pm. (two of a kind)

Unwrap A Brazilian Christmas

You’re invited to enjoy our non-stop Brazilian Christmas Saturdays (see below) through Christmas Day.

These holiday instrumentals and vocals sung in Portuguese and English are performed by Brazilians and non-Brazilians alike. A true celebration of the special relationship that Brazil shares with the world.

Be sure to mark your calendar for midnight on December 22nd, 2022. Our streaming station at Connectbrazil.com will present A Brazilian Christmas, streamed ‘live’ and nonstop through Christmas Day.

2022 marks our 26th consecutive year. Sounds great on your smartphone, too.

Thankful from Day One

I created The Sounds of Brazil for you, and to give the music and the musicians who perform it a special home.

This week marks the 1,594th consecutive week for The Sounds of Brazil, which made its broadcast debut in Chicago on April 5th, 1992. A few months later The Sounds of Brazil moves to its Saturday home on WNUA FM with a very special ‘Meet n Greet’.

2022 marks Brazil’s Bicentennial year. It’s also a milestone year for everything we do here. Connect Brazil celebrates its 25th full year, The Sounds of Brazil’s 30th anniversary, and Brazil!

Always Live, Always Free

I invite you to listen to our streaming station anytime on Live365.com – the official streaming radio partner for The Sounds of Brazil.

Thanksgiving Day always reminds me of how thankful I am to be able to share the music with you. And how much I appreciate your listening. Knowing that you are in the audience means so much to me.

It helps me to be the best I can be, each and every day.

So happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from all of us here on The Sounds of Brazil at Connectbrazil.com.

Thank you.

Scott Adams
