On today's show, I'm going to play the selections I chose for Stay Home RVA, and I've added on to them as well. Since it's a dinner music playlist, you might describe it as a polite version of Global A Go-Go. But it ain't background music -- no, it's some of my favorite non-dance tracks from around the world and across the decades, kind of a best of Global A Go-Go in its own right.
And since no Global A Go-Go program is complete without some dance tracks, I've added some on to the playlist. For folks who'll be supporting BHC at Stay Home RVA, you can think of them as a lagniappe, an extra gift, and maybe the way to start the dance party you want to host after your dinner is over.
If you'd like to know more about supporting the Better Housing Coalition through Stay Home RVA April 29 through May 5, here are a couple of links for you to check out:
