"Sweetback's Theme" by Melvin Van Peebles/Earth, Wind & Fire was my husband's ringtone. Now we are crying, as the husband's been dead for a year.

I'm experiencing choppy stream issues, my end or yours?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm ultradamno:

  8:35pm Androu B.:

I'm having problems here, too. In my case, it just stops completely. Now it doesn't play at all.
  8:37pm Androu B.:

OK, it's back now.
  8:38pm Jason P.:

Thank you so much for this tribute!

Just finished a bio on James Baldwin. Of course Gordon Parks is in there. But I didn’t see Van Peebles, who apparently lived in France also like Baldwin.
Wonder if they had crossed paths?

Stream is choppy, but this was happening earlier with the 91.1 signal. Maybe something in the studio.
