"A lot of musicians and artists don't have access to health care," says Church Health Communications Director Marvin Stockwell. "This is the music scene itself backing a cause that helps so many of them. That's been the message of the show for 11 years."
This week we are sponsored by Rock for Love, August 18-19.
On this episode we get heavy and we get light. Nihilist Politeness, Charley, Starla, Gil and Tedford... check in, Movies that deserve a rewatch, and more! Special thanks to Charley McMullen, Zac Slusher, Katrina Coleman, Gil Worth and Kaia Hodo. Be kind. Be strong. Don't be afraid.
TONIGHT @ 8 - http://rock103.iheart.com/

“Rock for Love backs a cause that’s part of the backbone of keeping Memphis healthy. People say it must be old hat to you guys by now, but it’s still fun. And you still encounter that goodwill people have for Church Health and that desire to help us, which is all in the context of an absolutely dynamite, fantastic music scene.”
