Hey all. How's that snow treatin' ya? It's business as usual here in Michigan, as we've done this once or twice, but my sympathies go out to those in areas where the snow and cold is causing chaos and destruction. This should be a reminder to check on your neighbors and take care of each other.
This week's mix continues our focus on Black artists for Black History Month. I want to note that the artist who covers Fake Plastic Trees on the mix, Amythyst Kiah, is releasing a brand new single the same day this mix releases. You can check it out at amythystkiah.com, and you should. Amythyst is a wonderful voice in music.
And let me know what you've been listening to lately. I can always use more tunes.
Last thing for today...though I don't speak of my day job often in this space, I want to highlight this public service announcement video from 100 Black Men of Greater South Bend. It was created in cooperation with multiple local groups, including members of the Inclusive Action Council of the Dwyer College of Health Sciences at IU South Bend, of which I am a member. Check it out and please share:
Stay warm, stay safe, and listen to great music. Take care!
