Last year Classical Music host Tom Quick of Kitchener, Ontario, Canada sent us the repertoire for three Black History Month programs, which were streamed on the Internet. This year he plans four Black History Month broadcasts, starting on Sunday, February 1, 2015 on www.thegrand929.com.

Good morning William
I’m planning a series of broadcasts again this year for Black History Month.
I prerecord a month in advance my programs for The Grand FM 92.9. www.thegrand929.com and this is the first broadcast.
I will be doing a four week series on FM 98.5 CKWR www.ckwr.com in my Women in Music series and will send you the broadcasts as I do them.
