Friday Drive
Friday February 5th, 2021 with Trevor Walker
[Black History Month "Music for & About The Struggle"]

This week we take a ride down memory lane and a listen to the music coming out in support of the African American civil rights movement in the US mostly from the 1970's with selections from the greats like Nina Simone Gil Scott-Heron and The Last Poets to name a few. This set was conceived a number of years ago in celebration of Black History month and you may recognize some of the music from past shows. Thought it was a good fit for the first Friday Drive of February. Enjoy!

Ain't white, I'm light-skinned
For those who don't know, Grady Tate's voice is synonymous with the wicked visual experience that is Brian De Palma's 1970 film, Hi, Mom! If you haven't seen this flick (starring a young Robert De Niro no less!) do yourself a favour, light up tha broccoli, and check it here at this youtizzle link b4 it's jacked:
