Pan African Heartbeat 2/17/13 and Just Folkin' Around 2/23/13

I have a couple of specialty radio shows that I hosted this past week! On the 17th I did another episode of Pan African Heartbeat, which was when fundraiser was still happening. Today (the 23rd) I did my first episode of Just Folkin’ Around, which is Saturdays 9-10am. I really enjoyed the folk show. I got to explore some artists I’d heard of but not listened to yet, found some totally new things for me, and got to play some of my favorite music too!
