Celebrating the contributions of African-American musicians
Eight Forty-Eight and Radio M host Tony Sarabia grew up in a household that celebrated musical diversity. His parents took him to concerts by the likes of Sly and the Family Stone, the Fifth Dimension and Chaka Khan.
As a boy, Sarabia listened to WBEZ's Richard Steele, then the "Real Steele" on WBMX, which later became V-103. Every Thursday in February, he and Steele will take the last half hour of Eight Forty-Eight to listen to some deep cuts from the African-American catalog.
