The Stories and Sounds of 80's Jazz (with Bowls)

On this episode of The Black Gold Historical Society, Brer Sunshine joined by Bowls (Funky Good Time / The Boom Bap) to talk with y’all about jazz and it’s, possibly, most unappreciated decade... the 1980s.

We’ll talk about why it’s overlooked and how some of our favorite hip-hop producers gravitated to this music.

Tune in every Monday night at 10p CST on 101.5 fm (streaming at www.wxnafm.org)
