To and From Columbus MLK Birthday Special

The show this week is inspired by the life, death, and fight of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. No “I Have A Dream” in this show. The selections are honest and poignant and punctuated by selections from King’s “Other America” speech given in 1967. Plus I mix in a preview of a few shows and few recent releases from some favorite bands.
