YNMG & COVID: Old-School Shoutout Show

May 8, 2020

Episode 60 we maximize the connective power of radio in service of appreciation and love for the people we might not be able to talk to—whether they're in a hospital, somewhere that phone service or net isn't so good, a senior living facility, a jail or prison, or just far away. And if you have any worries we've strayed too far from our mission, you know, with "government" in the name of this show, it's all good. We do have shoutouts from some government officials, too. 

Because of the rules around copyright, we can't post the audio as it aired with some of our favorite songs about missing people. This post and podcast version makes use of public domain music instead. If you want to, find the megahits edition on our two-week archive for Friday, May 8, at 7:30 p.m. 

How are things going for you? We want to know. Share your quarantine stories by calling: (505) 218-7084 and leaving us a message. We could roll them into a future episode.
