Just like everyone else in the world, the Day 1 Radio cast is having to adjust to the COVID-19 shutdowns, so we’re trying something new. Shoutout to our producer Herb for getting us connected to bring you another episode, virtually. Of course we’re talking about the elephant in the room but we’re also talking about some of the other (less stressful) things going on in the world too.
1:00 – Branden isn’t convinced that everyone is practicing social distancing like they are supposed to. Maurice isn’t convinced that everyone is taking the entire situation serious. Here, they talk about some of the things they’ve seen when they’ve gone out for groceries or a breath of fresh air.
5:00 – How long will be in this? We aren’t acting like we know, but we do encourage that you do your best to inform yourself by listening to the right sources.
7:40 – In the midst of the chaos, Jay Electronica dropped his highly-anticipated debut album “A Written Testimony.” But many people, including Branden, feel it’s an uninspired showing from Jay Elect and a contrived effort from Jay-Z.
15:10 – Here Branden and Reese talk about their current binges and books. Among them are McMillions, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, This Is Not a T-shirt, and Black Lightning.
21:10 – Maurice didn’t go to the D-Nice online party, but Branden thought it was dope, very needed and he def thinks D-Nice will be booking a lot of dates, once this whole thing is over with.
26:30 – Will the quarantine change how people live after it’s over? Maurice is curious to see if people will be in a rush to get back to “normal” things like waking up and fighting traffic to go to work everyday. Branden also wonders how it will impact large and small business’ bottom line.
35:00 – Artists are being hit hard with festivals being cancelled and some are thinking about not dropping any new music at all. Do you feel them on that?
