Dug through the archives this week to find songs that reflect our current times. The result is two hours of music about enjoying life while keeping a safe distance.
We hope you’re all doing well, staying healthy, and finding ways to keep busy. Here at STG home studios, we’re getting some gardening done, finding ways to exercise, and experimenting with new cooking adventures (yesterday, beignets!). And the music will continue to flow, because in these times we all need music.
Remember to get your free Daily Spin by liking and following STG on Facebook — you’ll also get other global music and cultural news, and it’s a great place to make requests and suggestions for future episodes.
