Sound Session #465 (5-11-14) – 9 Year Anniversary

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on May 12th, 2014 by Hyphen

SNSS

Well, well, well, this sure snuck up on us.  This past episode of SNSS marked our 9 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!  We feel overwhelmingly blessed and privileged to be able to present SNSS to you each week, and many thanks are in order for our supporters and management at KUBE 93, plus all our listeners in the local community and worldwide.  We’re here 100% for the music and culture, so it’s certainly not about us, but we’re flattered every time we reach one of these milestones.  Next up, show #500 and then next year, the SNSS 10 year anniversary.  We’ll definitely have something special planned for that one…

In the interim, we just keep on doing what we do.  Are we the Tim Duncan of independent hip-hop shows on commercial radio?  Perhaps, but since when is that a bad thing?  Hall of Fame numbers and hopefully this is just the beginning.  On this week’s episode, we were joined in studio by our homies V. Dot and Tasman Holloway (formerly known as Louis V), plus an emerging R&B singer from Tacoma, Kalieb Nash.  If you’re curious whether he can sing or saaaaaaing, check out the 2nd part of our interview where he laid down a little acapella for us.  That boy good.

Of course, we couldn’t do a show on Mother’s Day without paying homage to the women that brought us here and continue to make the world go around.  Hope you guys enjoy the multiple throwbacks and remember what Kanye said, “it don’t gotta be Mother’s Day, or your birthday / For me to just call and say Hey Mama.”  Give that lady a call if you’re blessed enough to still have her in your life.  Love you Mom.
