Nicole’s Picks

(aired 2/27/15)
Nicole's Family

On this show a creative co-host joined me to share her appreciation for music: Nicole Brady. She chose the full playlist, which took us on a chronological journey of the music that has been important in her life, starting from her childhood. Nicole is dedicating the show to her parents: Edward Allen Butt and Carole Ann DeGrosse. They’ve had a musical influence, having raised her with a rich array of musical experiences and exposure. It was enjoyable to talk with Nicole about the stories and hear the tunes.
