It’s been one year since the police killing of innocent youth Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.  And it’s been 70 years since the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan.  We’ll hear songs to reflect both events.  Plus some pleasing music for a Sunday morning, and early afternoon. Hosted by Kevin Vance.
