"In 20 years of listening to hip hop, its music and stories have never left me unchallenged or unchanged. Throughout its history—from Kool Herc to KRS and beyond—hip hop has told the story of America through the styles of noir, memoir, jazz and rhythm and blues, comic books and blockbuster action movies. It is everything we say we are, and
those things we maintain we are not. This is the new American Songbook." - KMUW commentator, Zack Gingrich-Gaylord New American Songbook can be heard on alternate Mondays, or through iTunes.
