Hello everyone, hoping your weekend will be filled with joy and happiness. Free of stress and dumb stuff. It looks like the rain has taken a break so we can enjoy a little bit of entertainment.

To start off, I want you to join me at the beginning of a music series that aims to promote Black Music and how we express ourselves culturely through music. The first show in the series will be about blues and rhythm & blues. The second will be about Hip Hop and the third, about jazz. Sponsored by the Deutach Foundation is a Baltimore-based philanthropic organization that supports people in suppressed communities to enable them to express themselves culturally.
