Ear Candy 2.0 features delicious sounding music from all over the world, with an emphasis on Black music from the African Diaspora. If the tastiest songs the Earth has ever known make up Ear Candy 2.0’s physical body, Black music – from Los Angeles to Austin, from New York City to Kingston, from London to Paris – is the beating heart of our body. Turn on, tune in, and get free with program host V. Marc Fort (DJ Space Cadet) every Monday from 4:30-6 pm.
More shows can be found on Mixcloud.
