Evolving Through the Pandemic: Catching Up with CJ-0

A lot has happened since the last time we had CJ-0 on The Quinn Spinn. She was known as MOLLE. The world was juuuuuust going into COVID-19-induced lockdown. There was a lot we still had to learn about ourselves, and about each other.

Here we are 20 months later, and there is much to discuss. The pandemic and our individual journeys have informed great changes (and even progress!) since the last time we shared space in the studio. Join us today for an excellent conversation about healing, growth, and purpose!

Songs You Should Hear: Don’t ‘Sleep’ Too Long; STAV G’s Lucid Dream

This week’s Songs You Should Hear showcases the broad scope of the music out there for all of us — from the more traditional, to the completely unorthodox.

We love it when we get to paint from a broad palette like this — it keeps things interesting, and certainly, it gives all of our ears something new to appreciate — no matter your flavor.

Let’s start this weekend right!

UMC20: No Hangover Here (Nov. 2, 2021)

How do you follow up one of the greatest months in UMC history? By ensuring that this month looks just as bright!

There’s no Halloween hangover. There’s no stopping this train following a 7-event month, where we also continued to Keep the Music Playing here in the digital space. It starts here and now, with the first UMC20 of November.

We had some submissions to catch up on (and no doubt, more where those came from). We also allotted some slots on this week’s playlist to the upcoming NashLive! shows that you’ll soon enjoy here in Nashville. There’s pop, rock, soul, Americana, and even a few songs that will get you in your feels.

Let’s mix it all into the gumbo pot and let it rip!
