Call in to speak with the host
Yes, you heard that right - we're determined to CELEBRATE October, despite the chaos that grips the world. And we're especially high on focusing on those born under the sign of Libra - like our guest, Veronica Nunn, whose birthday we honor as this is being typed :)
Veronica brought something to our attention on her last visit - and we'll be focusing on that, too. BULLYING. On October 9th of this year, it's "Unity Day." That means - apart from the suggestion to wear orange - that thousands are coming together to push the prevention and elimination of bullying everywhere. In every form. V has her own stories - as does yours truly. And we're encouraging YOU to share a pivotal moment in your life that may have hurt. But maybe it made you also more determined to see this kind of abuse end! Feel free to call 323 - 843 - 6172 between one and four p.m. Eastern time - especially if you have a way in your city to end bullying - or if you have a suggestion yourself. We'd love to hear it!
Veronica, meanwhile, is VERY busy - her "Tales From the Jazz Side" podcast...big events with Michael Franks (B.B. King's in New York - and Tokyo!) and consistent writing, teaching, and pushing positivity wherever she can.
We'll have some special music picked out for you - October Babies, of course! And the conversation should be energizing and thought-provoking. This is our third time "hanging out" on Hybrid Jazz - and it has been too much fun to articulate - but you'll HEAR it!

It's good to talk.
