Dam Daily with BLESZ + a local leader | 28 Jan
BLESZ with the super chilled remixes, RnB, a Friendly Song, and local stories, including one about leader, Hugo Kooks, another of Amsterdam’s #BlackArchivesIcons as told by by Elyzabeth Gorman.
Listen back to this shorter than normal one-hour radio show, including music tracks, on the mixcloud player here:
The #BlackArchivesIcons feature comes in about 50:00
“Recently, the mural on The Black Archives in Amsterdam was defaced. The images were devastating, in part because of the incredible people the art depicts. More people should know about these heroes – and not just in the Netherlands! To help broadcast their stories, I’ll be posting them every week under #BlackArchivesIcons and telling them Thursday mornings on Broadcast Amsterdam. Read more about it here.”

This week’s Friendly song is by the The Irrational Library, an amazing band from Haarlem. Their latest album “We… are doomed ” was released this month. Check out the Friendly song and title track below. The album is available on all major streaming platforms and on vinyl.
