After being away from the air we followed the instruction from the radio station to begin preparing radio shows from home, if possible. It’s a steep learning curve for the technically unsavvy. We managed to undermike our voice and made a few other mistakes along the way to our first home broadcast file.

Along the way, we played some pretty interesting music, however–R&B, Blues, Hokum Blues, Western Swing, Old Time, Gospel and Soul.
