Cause and Effect presents:

Hey Listeners,

Haberdasher here at the controls of Cause and Effect – one of my favorite shows on WRIR. It’s always a challenge and a blast to host this show. Today’s deep dive – Questlove. And although rap and hip hop are outside of my wheelhouse, I have gotten really into Questlove.

Although The Roots are the house band for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that is not how I came to be interested in Questlove. It started with Summer of Soul the incredible documentary he made last year about the Harlem Cultural Festival. I loved it and was intrigued that he had made it. This past Christmas, my wife (DJ Lil’ Space), Helen, gave me a copy of his latest book – Music Is History.

I really enjoy reading music books and often blow through them. But this was much more challenging to read. It was chronological – but not linear. Sure there was lots about music, but it was deeper and more interesting than that. I decided it would be a great focus for my show one night or even a Cause and Effect. When a slot opened for July, I jumped in and expanded the show to be about Questlove with a focus on Music Is History.

I hope you enjoy it.
