Music From the Radio Free Athens Crew: June 27, 2020< < Back to

I got some great feedback about the Muppets song I recently used so I started this list with one that my son Raad turned me on to. I have also been thinking about the idea of change so there are a few songs with that in mind. Then there is some random stuff.
Summer means the beach, and the beach means island music.
Surprisingly, (and to my great disappointment), I hear some version of the following sentence from young people: “I’m not that familiar with reggae.” This week’s list is for you, and for the rest who remember. As always, thank you for listening.
