GLOBAL VILLAGE
Global Village is an eclectic, world music-based show. It features the latest and best in world music new releases and classics along with a wide variety of artists and selections from nearly all other genres of music that incorporate influences from around the world.

Informative and entertaining, current yet set in a wider musical and historical context, the show draws on the knowledge, experience and congenial personality of host Chris Heim - and a library of over 50,000 albums, including many out-of-print titles - to pull these musical strands together into an intriguing and captivating whole.

With its broad range of artists and styles, the program works well alongside AAA, jazz, or other local and national world music, Latin, Triple AAA and other shows, including Afropop, Etown, JazzSet, World Cafe, and related local productions.

The distinctive and entertaining music mix and presentation makes the show a stand-out that attracts listeners. Its appeal to the qualities of heart, mind and spirit makes Global Village an obvious choice for the classic public radio listener, while at the same time, speaking to a younger, increasingly multicultural and genre-hopping audience. At KMUW, where the show has run since 2007, the largest audience cume is 25-34, though the show attracts across all age ranges.

• Available five days a week
• 57-minute program with two floating 1:00 breaks
• One show @ week any day, weekend or fill-in
• Specials offered throughout the year
• Show is stream-able
• SoundExchange compliant

Additional promotional support available through Facebook page (link below) with program information, videos, news, reviews, feature and resource information.

Producer/Host - Chris Heim
Radio and world music veteran Chris Heim began a lifelong love affair with radio after wandering into the University of Chicago campus station and being offered an unexpectedly open music slot. Her first radio job was at one of the Chicago area’s last true “free form” stations, WJKL. She later worked at WXRT Chicago’s progressive rock station, and then joined WBEZ Chicago Public Radio. There she hosted jazz and world music shows (the latter one of the first and longest running in public radio, starting just six months after the debut of Afropop) and served as Music Director. She was also executive producer and anchor for national broadcasts of the Chicago Jazz, Blues and Latin Music Festivals, and the Traffic series with Steppenwolf Theater. A freelance writer as well, Chris has written liner notes and bios, as well as features, cover stories and reviews for such publications as the Chicago Tribune, Utne, Global Rhythm, Dirty Linen, Jazziz, Jazz Times, Blues Revue, Option, Illinois Entertainer, and more. She is also a contributor to the Transglobal World Music Chart, the NPR Jazz Critics Poll and fRoots Annual World Music Critics Poll.

Global Village has been a fantastic addition to our non-com AAA format. Chris Heim has an amazing super power ability to sound like one of our own team members. The breadth and depth of its music leaves us wanting a daily four hour show. Pleeeezzzzeeee????
Chuck Miller, General Manager WNKU-FM

"Music selection and variety superbly chosen and assembled. Name your day and day part: Global Village could fit almost everywhere."
PRX Music Format Curator David Srebnik

"Global Village, hosted on KMUW in Wichita, Kansas and broadcast on stations around the world (as well as online), is one of the finest world music programs on the airwaves. DJ Chris Heim really knows her stuff, and consistently presents a fantastic hour of music, carefully curated around a theme, and peppered with exactly the right amount of chatter and useful information. To be quite honest, it's one of the only world music radio shows that this writer goes out of her way to listen to regularly, and it seems that I'm definitely not the only fan out there!"
Readers Choice World Music Awards - Best World Music Radio Show

"I like this series a lot – Chris Heim breathes new life into World Music programming with The Global Village. Like the World Café and Folk Alley, there’s never a wasted or throwaway musical moment. Reliable, consistently appealing World Music programming. Maybe this is a series worth considering for regular air play on your schedule."
PRX Music Format Curator David Srebnik, PRX Music Station Picks for January '11

"...the trifecta of good world music radio presentation: a great ear for music, a good sense for sequencing and sounds, and (perhaps most importantly) a knack for presenting real music with real information without being wonky or pedantic."
Megan Romer, About.com World Music Blog

"Global Village shows are great listening - well-paced, simply but succinctly scripted, and with an excellent choice and range of music within the broader genre of ‘world music’."
John Pilley
Music Production Manager - Radio New Zealand National

"(Chris Heim's) knowledge and understanding of music never ceases to amaze."
KMUW listener

"We love GV on KWTF! "
