Sounds of Black Milwaukee from DJ Andy Noble and a special jazz set

In the first hour, we feature a special mix from tastemaker DJ Andy Noble called Color Me Black! - Black Power, Consciousness, and Spirituality in a Divided Milwaukee (1965-1980).

Beautiful, angry, reflective, positive, and spiritual musical reactions to life in a city of lines and division. The mix features the sounds of African-American Milwaukee from approximately 1965-1980. Due to the rarity of many of these records, less-than-perfect copies have provided source music.

In the second hour, we feature an all jazz set with tracks from Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, Jose James, Melanie De Biasio and more.
