This week on the Sundilla Radio Hour, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom with music by artists who performed on that day as well as songs inspired by the March and the civil rights movement.
Take a journey through the best that singer-songwriters and acoustic musicians of all kinds have to offer through music and conversation. The Sundilla Radio Hour airs Thursday night from 7 to 8 p.m. on Troy Public Radio. The producer is Bailey Jones and the host is Kelly Walker. We welcome your comments at email@example.com.
