Hi again!

Bossa Nova celebrates its 60th birhday this year, so we're right on track with our annual salute to Brazil’s greatest songwriter on The Sounds of Brazil this week! 2018 also brought us more than our fair share of snow and cold, so we're doing our best to “overlook” winter. Here's how we'll make it happen:

Did this week's show image catch your eye? A life-size bronze statue of Antonio Carlos Jobim was dedicated on the black- and white-tiled mosaic sidewalk that lines the beach at Ipanema and we have the full story here. Not to be missed!

Wednesday's Brazil Back2Back plays a pair of tunes from our New Music Playlist. Listen to our top of the hour two-in-a-row every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11 am and again at 2 pm Central time.

Sunday's Brazilian Brunch served up a 'latitude' adjustment when we warm up to the Ipanema Sun : songs and stories from the beach were Bosaa was born. Plus a special salute to Jobim on his birthday. So join us! Three full hours every Sunday at 5 am, 9 am and again at 2 and 8 pm Chicago time and only here on The Sounds of Brazil.
