soulBlog: (1) Toshi Reagon interview segment teaser (2) Six of Prince’s “Originals” spread across the 11/23/19 WYEP and WTJX broadcasts

Toshi Reagon teaser

On the 11/30/19 edition of The Soul Show (WYEP), we’ll do an interview with Toshi Reagon to get you ready for her 12/9 free performance at Pittsburgh Playhouse. She’ll be performing from the Bernice Reagon songbook WITH her mother, the founder of Sweet Honey In The Rock. Bernice retired from SHR fifteen years ago, and retired altogether in 2014, so this is a very big deal.

Here’s a teaser for the upcoming broadcast. We talk about Toshi’s Smithsonian Folkways recordings, and about how her palette extends far beyond. Enjoy.
