Welcome to The Sounds of Brazil!

No, really. I want you to know that you are welcome and I’m happy to see you here today.

Once again, we are reminded how quickly the world can change and how it can overwhelm our daily routines. Just like 9/11 and 2008, this is a time where appreciating the power of music in our lives can create a steady and calming effect.

So, just as we have for the past 28 years, I want you to know how welcome you are here, whether it be online or on-the-air.

And I want you to know how welcoming we will continue to be, by providing the best of Bossa Nova, your favorite Brazilian Jazz songs plus crossover hits from both sides of the equator every day and night, playing your requests and sharing your messages and stories. Use the helpful links above.

Thursday brings us a much-anticipated change of seasons, and even though the Spring of 2020 will be like none most of us have experienced in our lives, our friendships, our faith and yes, our music will help to sustain us. Rebirth, renewal… that’s Spring!

…and so is this show.

Thank you – as always – for listening.

Scott Adams
