We’re honoring Black History month in February here at XPN with a month’s worth of great content. Tune in every weekday this upcoming month to hear a different featured artist throughout music history. We’re talking the best of the best from the soul, funk, blues, jazz, RnB genres and more like Sly & The Family Stone, who kicks off Black History month programming on February 1st, and Aretha Franklin, who came in #1 on our 885 Greatest Songs by Women Countdown with “Respect.” See below for the full month’s list of featured artists.
