January flew right by and, as we head into the final weekend of the month, there are a few virtual shows and plenty of live music to tell you about. I introduced the new monthly YouTube local artist playlist, in case you missed it earlier this week. The Spotify playlist will be here by the weekend. If you want in on the playlists or the weekly music lineup, let me know by using the “contact us” form on the website, Facebook messenger or email your info to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you sent me links for YouTube after the post went up, you will be on February’s playlist. For the weekly lineup, please get your information to me by Wednesday evening. And, please, give the Facebook page a “like” and a share while you’re there. Thanks !
