On this installment of the Barber Shop Show, host Richard Steele sat down with Ayana Contreras, host of Reclaimed Soul on Vocalo (and Executive Producer of The Barber Shop Show). They talked about the history of Chicago Soul music. They also talked about her love affair with vinyl records. By the way, most of those records came out before she even was born.
We also heard from Mya B., the director behind a new documentary called “Afraid of Dark” that explores the consequences of black male stereotypes.
The Barber Shop Show airs on Fridays and Saturdays at Noon on 91.1FM. You can also stream live at vocalo.org. In addition, the show broadcasts on Sundays at 3pm on WBEZ 91.5FM.
