Musical Debates!

Can’t thank Tom Arnel and WCOM 103.5FM enough for hosting Musical Debates each election year!  On Saturday, September 26th, after a very interesting School Equity forum which I’ll write about later, I had the pleasure of bantering with Alderwoman Michelle Johnson about the importance of voting, development strategies and decision-making in Carrboro and Chapel Hill, the creative economy, the origins of the word Cackalack, and other topics.  If you have an hour to spare while washing dishes or stalled in traffic on 15-501, tune in.  You’ll hear some great songs by (in no particular order):

  • Rhiannon Giddensmusic bars
  • Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats
  • John Legend
  • Nina Simone
  • Jonathan Byrd
  • Michael Frante
  • The Meters
  • Gil Scott Heron
  • Rayland Baxter
  • Shirley Horn

I’m leaving the song names and guest DJ’s name off the list to encourage you to listen! It’s fun. But more fun it you start at 1:18.  Enjoy!
