Playlist March 20, 2014

During the this show, we celebrated our African women? Oops! Did I say our women? I apologize. Why do we men always claim to own women. What I meant to say is that we are celebrating the women in our lives, including those who dumped us, coz you know many of them were right? Oops! I’m I gonna get in trouble for that? I wanna send a shout out to the wife in my life.

We began that set with a song called
