#OnYourSide: Support Your Favorite Artists Directly

The idea is simple: If you find yourself listening to an artist’s music to help you through your day, send them money directly to help them through their day. We’ve created this page as a repository of musicians’ Venmo and PayPal accounts so you can easily find a way to help them out. (If you’re looking for listings of livestreams, try Billboard, BandsInTown, Vimeo LiveStream, or Jambase… just to name a few!) Send a dollar because it really felt good to crank that tune. Five bucks because they made you feel happy or feel less isolated for an hour. Whatever…

I think it is safe to say that without music we would all be a bit more loopy with everything that is going on. So I’m extremely happy to bring you show #2 from my dining room straight to your ears. As baseball season should have started this week and the hockey season stalled I start the show with a sporting set of great songs to ease the pain a bit (after all there’s no crying in baseball). After which I’ll spin some tunes in relation to being holed-up safely in our homes, honor Phife Dawg and say Happy Birthday…
