CKMS Community Connections for 22 June 2020

Although show hosts are back in the studio, we’re still not open for guests. So today I’m catching up on some of the artists I didn’t get to last week, and revisiting the music of some previous guests.

There’ll be podcasts for those episodes with guests in the studio, or on the phone. But today, it’s just the music list.

–Bob.
