Shout! Black Gospel Music Moments


In celebration of Black History Month, KVLU will feature "Shout! Black Gospel Music Moments" each Sunday in February at 8pm (right between two Sunday evening favorites, "All That Jazz" and "Rock Therapy"). Tune in to 91.3 FM and kvlu.org as author and Baylor University professor Robert Darden tells stories -- and plays recordings -- from the Baylor University Libraries' Black Gospel Music Restoration Project.
This series of two-minute segments explores the distinctly African-American sound of the "Golden Age of Gospel" (1945-1975) and celebrates this fertile musical period in American history, presenting cultural snapshots that reveal the depth of a people, their community, and the influence they have had on the rest of American music.
