Vintage West African Jams!

Click to enlarge

God, I love radio for many, many reasons. One thing I don't love is how it predisposes me towards shorter, "poppier" tunes because that's what radio "likes." It caters to lower quaity by presuming a certain amount of dislike, pre-fitting itself to a lower commitment of listeners you know, actually listening to a song. Songs stay short so investment is low, and in a couple of minutes you're on to the next song. Well lately, I've been connecting with songs, particularly African songs, whose strength is not brevity but are long running jams.

For those living with cognitive or developmental disabilities, forming healthy friendships can sometimes be difficult.  

They can have a hard time communicating with people who do not have special needs, and they are often the target of stigma, or worse, bullying.

But a local organization is helping to bridge that gap, pairing people with disabilities to others in friendship.
