Largest Minority Radio Show: January 22, 2014

It’s January 22, 2014, and if you are in the NYC listening area, you know that we are in the midst of a wintry nightmare, with lots of snow and slush, and bitter cold temperatures. Even if you are not living with a disability that affects your mobility, you are surely aware that the weather has made it far more difficult to navigate the city. So we had to cancel our plan for tonight’s show, and we will bring those guests and topics to you in a future broadcast.

Tonight, we are going to revisit two shows from 2013 that combine social justice issues with some music, which will hopefully brighten your evening a bit. We’ll hear from Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir, and some tracks from Richie Havens! But since this is the week when we commemorate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we thought we would share some thoughts written by Alice Wong at a great new website called — the link is below and my co-host and producer T.K. Small suggested we read it to you tonight.
