The Long Song

For the first time in their series, hosts LaRonda Davis, Earl Douglas, and Darrell McNeill play a few of their favorite extended cuts. Highlighted here are tracks extending past five minutes that promote musicianship and progressive black albums. A special hour devoted to mini-musical opuses and forward-looking rockers of color including The Mars Volta, Saul Williams, Maktub, WAR, Funkadelic, and Grace Jones.



Black Rock Coalition Radio


The Black Rock Coalition was founded in 1985 by guitarist Vernon Reid, journalist Greg Tate, and producer Konda Mason in reaction to the constrictions that the commercial music industry places on black artists. Over the years it has broadened its mission in active support of Black artists who defy convention. These programs are produced and hosted by Earl Douglas, LaRonda Davis, and Darrell McNeill.
