Let Your Voice Be Heard:

Arrested Development's SPEECH Speaks Out 

This week on THE JANUS ADAMS SHOW,  fresh from his performance at the Women’s March in Atlanta . . . “Let Your Voice Be Heard: Arrested Development’s SPEECH Speaks Out” about family, HipHop, social justice, and seizing the “breaks.”

Twenty years ago, Arrested Development took to the stage; challenging gangsta-dominated images of Hip Hop with defiant lyrics of hope. Breaking down walls and raising expectations, the Grammy Award-winning group produced a string of rousing hits.  With the success of their chart-topping single, “Mr. Wendal,” Arrested Development not only took the issue of homelessness to audiences worldwide; they donated half of their royalties to the National Coalition for the Homeless.

Hear the show streamed live Saturdays at 12:00 pm on WJFF Radio Catskill.  Subscribe to our podcast (uploaded every Monday) and listen to past shows on SoundCloud.
