Martin Luther King Jr. Day music special

Today, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we are presenting a special music program at noon MT in honor of Dr. King’s life and legacy. 

The songs included range across genres and musical eras. Many live on as classics with a sound, and a message, that still resonates as strongly today as ever. 

Artists featured in today’s special include:

  • Stevie Wonder
  • Whodini
  • Bobby Womack
  • Staple Singers

Today’s program is hosted by Margot, who also hosts the weekly program Music 101. During the hourlong program each week, Margot highlights a different chapter in music history, bringing you songs you love and the stories behind them.

Listen to Music 101 on the Colorado Sound every Sunday at 10am MST, with the same episode repeated Wednesday at 8pm MST.
