PODCAST: Downtown Music Lab proteges
Three with connections past and present
Music Lab trips have included
Harlem's legendary Apollo
There may not be a better connector than the Downtown Music Lab in Roanoke for young people and music.
The Lab's Genesis Osagboro brought in three guys with present and past connections to the lab to share their thoughts and music with you. "Grads" Theo Boardley, 22, and Tony Francis, 23, talk about what they took with them from the program. Evan Wofford, 16, who with his sister, Sierra, is part of the lab, talks about how it became a place for the siblings to collaborate musically.
In case you didn't know, we've been doing these podcasts for a little while now. What are they? They're like radio shows in mp3 format. You can right click and hit "save target as" to download them to your computer or mp3 player, or just stream them by hitting the pointy thing in the RealPlayer box above right. If you want to get with the leading edge tech stuff, you can drag the XML button above left onto your news reader.
Go to our message board and tell us what you think.
