If this show had legs it would have found a few dozen dance moves to throw down. It doesn’t have this ability, but don’t let that stop you from getting down. Black History Month or not, every one of these artists deserves every award they have won, and many more they hadn’t.
You have no excuse but to strap in for a real good time.
And do not even get me started about the bullshit that is out there, coming from racist white assholes about the need for a White History Month. EVERY MONTH IS WHITE HISTORY MONTH!!!! For Christ’s sake, the entire history of our nation has been written by white people. Blacks get the shortest month of the year. February was chosen because of the birthdays of both Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. I get it, I get it. But until we make serious amends with our original sin, this country will never heal. I’m a proponent of paying reparations to Blacks who can show they are direct decedents of slaves. I also believe we need to do the same to Indigenous Americans. Hitler and the Nazi’s learned how to control their population based on our treatment of native tribes and Jim Crow laws, post Civil War.
We have a lot of work to do.
The second hour has a Bob Marley birthday set. He would have celebrated 76 years last week. Any excuse to play more Bob Marley.
In the meantime, enjoy these two hours. Many genres, all great music.
