About Music for a Monday

Jackie Sauter
Host Jackie Sauter

Music for a Monday delivers the best of world and international music each week, only on North Country Public Radio.

Host Jackie Sauter says: Can't sing, don't play an instrument, but I sure do love music, all kinds, and I love sharing it with listeners on Mondays. Besides enriching our own lives, music really is a universal language and has so many possibilities for helping us understand each other better and come to a fuller appreciation of other cultures and world views.

The emphasis on the show is on world music, but we also take many eclectic side trips to swing, jazz, blues, folk, country, pop and beyond, with special attention paid to new releases that I think you would enjoy. Public radio listeners are a sophisticated and discriminating bunch, so keeping up with you is always a challenge.

And in case you need a list, here's one—my recommendations, some old, some new. I'll update it from time to time. If you like the show, you will like these recommendations!
