The lyrics to one of the songs in this week’s playlist have been kicking around in my head for the past month or so. And while I've only been back from Brazil for a couple of months, winter took its toll and I’m again in need of a fix: “There’s a beach in my mind, and it’s so hard to find” (also, where’s spring, anyway?). So while you wait around for Superpulse to drift its way toward your ears in our webstream, why not enjoy these tropical tidbits:


Friday's Brazil Back2Back taps two tunes from San Francisco & the Bay Area when you listen at the top of the hour at 11 am and 2 pm CT, exclusively on our streaming station. Daily Listening Guide.

This week’s show:

‘Brazil... Chilled’

With snow still piled high in the Colorado mountains and cold stormy weather sweeping across the plains and the east coast, there’s no doubt that spring is taking its sweet time getting here this year. In Chicago, we’re warmer than normal for April, and that's a good sign for the Sunshime Season.

So I’ve decided to “play along” with this week’s show.

Depending on where you sit on the musical spectrum, ‘Chill’ can generate musical passion or leave you… cold. But ever since trumpeter Chris Botti debuted the radio show that helped give rise to the sound a decade ago, Chill has earned its own global following for its dedication to ambient electronica.

It’s pretty obvious that Chill has found a willing partner in Brazilian music. But there’s a difference: the music flowing up from Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Salvador has at its core a natural sensibility that you can trace back nearly six decades to the birth of Bossa Nova. Yes, it’s true; Brazil’s Chill will warm your heart and stir your soul. Easy rhythms fueled by the Brazilian sun.

This week’s program is a grand collection of downtempo, exotic electronica and aurally acoustic gems, found scattered across the world’s best beaches: Copacabana, Ibiza, Grand Cayman, Arenales del Sol, Ipanema, Barbados and São Paulo’s Ilhabella, and even one of my own favorite stretches of sand, Praia Vermelho (you can’t beat the view).

The idea is a simple one: Relax, unwind, rejuvenate with the beach in your mind. Soak up the sun with these Brazilian sounds and pay no mind to the forecast for a while. Who knows?

Maybe spring will tune in too.
