There's a new trend in Naptown! THE NEW BLACK: new music from 9-10am Tuesday mornings with Alex Cortright. 


Here's Alex with a few words about THE NEW BLACK:


“The New Black” - it’s what’s happening now. Did it replace the last thing? Well, maybe. But perhaps it just added something interesting to what had been there. Trendiness? No. Trends? Maybe. Compelling new songs? Yes.


The New Black is about good new music from any source. Duke Ellington famously remarked, “If it sounds good, it IS good.” I think that’s about as concise a statement of purpose as one can hope for. Join me Tuesdays at 9a. Wear what you want.
