Episode Notes

This episode was all about reflection. We Black History Month and some of the songs that inspired us to either write or record.  We go into what inspired Forbidden and how it was uniquely recorded.  There are literally hundreds of inspiring stories that happened during the Civil Rights Movement,, I found one that caught my attention that I share. We also talk about a benefit I will be apart of that helps yet another human society in Boston area called Buddy Dog and it's creator  Linda Marks.
