Just Folkin' Around 4/13/13 & Pan African Heartbeat 4/14/13

Two posts in one day! Wow! I forgot to include the last couple specialty shows that I’ve done in my last post. So here they are! I did another episode of Just Folkin’ around, which was really great. Just Folkin’ around is one of my favorite specialty shows to do because it allows me to play a lot of music that I know and like to listen to, and to re-discover music I haven’t listened to in a while. I also did another episode of Pan African Heartbeat. Enjoy!
