Playing music for the global community

World Music Radio (listen now whilst you're reading this) is celebrating the New Year (and decade, century etc.) with World Music 2000, a live internet webcast, lasting 24 hours, to celebrate the arrival of midnight in all 24 time zones, beginning at the International Date Line with territories such as the far east of Russia, New Zealand and some Pacific territories. As midnight arrives in each time zone, the station will play music from countries in the zone.

The station asks you to email your good wishes for listeners all over the world to (or phone the studio direct on +1 619 308 1875). Your messages will then be broadcast during the appropriate hour.

There's more information about this novel concept on the World Music Radio website.


Online Music Magazines

If you have some extra spare time over the imminent holiday season, you might like to know about some new online music magazines.

BBC Music Magazine is launching a new website this month, December 1999 (which means sometime during the next few days), to include a new daily news service and the magazine's library of CD new releases, including the back catalogue, and online purchasing of CDs, books, concert tickets, videos and audio equipment. Keep your eyes peeled, and remember that you read about it first at Music & Vision!

Soundtrack Magazine is one of the oldest publications - Luc Van De Ven has published it for nearly 25 years. A new site is being launched, and a preview edition is available now. It includes a previously unpublished interview with Ron Goodwin and a scoring session interview with Don Davis about House on Haunted Hill.

A magazine from India - called simply The Music Magazine gives a different perspective on the music world and SPW's big list of journals and magazines is worth a look for many more journals, although links to some of the sites are broken. Don't forget us at Music & Vision, by the way ... our normal service continues right through the Christmas and New Year season, and we're about to launch some new regular features.
