Radio Show Notes From February 22 2018
February 23, 2018
In Case You Missed It:
– The very talented and fun country group Southern Halo stopped by for an interview and in-studio performance. They are a super traditional country group, and you really hear those Mississippi Delta roots in their music.
– The Natchez Board of Aldermen approved funds to build a monument dedicated to the Parchman Ordeal. An incident largely ignored by history, it was one of the most egregious treatment of African-American civil rights workers from the 1960s. First time you’ve heard of it? Learn more.
– New Orleans Saints & Pelicans owner Tom Benson is hospitalized with flu symptoms. Sending positive thoughts and healing vibes his way.
– Kelsea Ballerini dropped a new single from her sophomore album Unapologetically. I love the first line: “I hate Shakespeare and Gosling and cakes with white frosting.” Country radio so wanted Kelsea to be the “next” Taylor Swift, which is just such an unrealistic expectation to place on any new singer. I’m glad to hear Kelsea finding her groove as an artist.
– Right before I got off the air, Cole Swindell released a new single from his next album. It’s called “Break Up In The End” and it definitely has some serious feels.
– Viral Video: UK nursing home hires pole dancers to keep residents entertained (more-or-less SFW)
