Black Music today is at a crossroads. Commercial radio has largely confined black music to Top 40 Hip Hop and R & B. Meanwhile, countless black artists, such as Outkast, Santagold, Lupe Fiasco, N.E.R.D and Kanye West are busy challenging that narrow definition.
Join RadioMilwaukee this June as we celebrate Black Music Month. Every Thursday in June we'll play a 3-4 song set featuring the artists that are working outside the box today that are making a big impact on the music we'll hear tomorrow.
And starting June 1, go to radiomilwaukee.org and let us know who is your favorite Black artist/band of all time. We’ll do a live countdown of your picks at the end of the month. Click here for the poll.
Also in June, join us for Stevie Wonderful, a 90 minute musical tribute celebrating the genius and creativity of Stevie Wonder.
Celebrate Black Music Month. This June. On 88Nine RadioMilwaukee.
