In this episode: We bring you a story from the archives of our Storytelling Workshop. It’s a story about a West Side youth movement and dance called Bopping. Tariq Weaver explores the origins of the dance, and who are the rising talents of this subculture.
Also, host Jesse Menendez spoke with critically acclaimed jazz pianist Robert Glasper. Robert spoke about his new album Black Radio 2 and his desire to shake up traditional jazz by incorporating elements you don’t generally hear in it.
MorningAMp’s Molly and Brian spoke with comedian Godfrey during his Chicago visit. He talks about growing up in Chicago and the 90s comedy scene.
We close the show the usual way - a DJ set. This one is courtesy of Vocalo DJ Collective Member, DJ Charlie. Tune in!
The Vocalo workshop introduced me to Tariq and now we’re friends and he’s just the best. The best! Y’all should shut up and listen.
