Hello again,

When Basia burst on the scene with ‘Time and Tide’ in 1987, the pop world was once again tapped on the shoulder by the Brazilian beat. And many of her earliest fans were right here in Chicago, were she lived, thrived and finally ‘arrived’ musically – just ahead of her debut album.

And while her rhythms are not purely Brazilian, the musical message was clear. We’ve selected several of her best to share with you this week. And now with her first US tour in several years underway and with a new album too, we’ll debut the next chapter in Basia’s amazing career.

Happy Listening,
Scott Adams
