Sixth Annual Black History Month Celebration on P!TBBB

 

I went back and had a look at the KDHX Blog I posted for the my first Black History Month Celebration back in January of 2009. In that blog I mentioned that I was unsure if I could pull together enough material for a month's worth of shows featuring music by the bands I usually play covering music made famous by, written by and or performed by African Americans. Here's what I said,

"not only did I have plenty for four February shows, but I could easily do two more years of February shows and not repeat a single song."

And now I'm on the 6th set of shows. I've found that by keeping my eyes and ears open I have been able to add material for future shows (and here's the tough part) without repeating. Well, I've repeated a few songs over the years, but not enough to sound repetitive. 

 

Like in the past years I'll be following the same format: covers of African American music the first three weeks, then the last week will be original versions of many of the songs I played the first three weeks. 

 

I'll also be having a guest on during week two to talk about an exhibit she put together called the Hands On Black History Museum.

 

I hope you will be able to tune in to the shows which air from 10-noon on Thursdays in February (February 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th)
