What the Fontaine?!: Roots (6/3/16)


“What the Fontaine?!: You never know what you’ll hear next on this fun mix of tunes from across the decades and musical genres.”

Did you watch the Roots mini-series this week on History Channel? I did. Still pretty powerful stuff. Chicken George! I thought I’d play mostly African-American music for you tonight… lotsa great stuff 9-11pmEDT.
