Nerdette listeners and our resident music expert offer you some songs to turn your day around now. Right now!

There’s never a bad time to expand your musical horizons, and mid-pandemic is no exception.

So we got ahold of Jill Hopkins, host of The Morning AMp at Vocalo, Chicago’s urban alternative radio station, to provide us with some positive listening. 

The prompt? Vocalo’s 15 day song challenge. Take it yourself! 

Plus, Nerdette listeners supplied us with a list of great tracks too. Enjoy!
