The Upside: Glorious (re-broadcast 02.27.19)

This is a re-broadcast from February 27, 2019 - and the music is still glorious!

In honor of Black History Month, I'm playing music by black (mostly American) women and nonbinary performers and musicians. I've got tracks from some of the greats such as Aretha, Whitney, and Beyoncé, and I'm playing some of my current favorite artists, including Janelle Monàe, Santigold, and new-to-me Angel Haze.

In short, I'm playing two hours of music that will move your feet and stir your soul.
