Weekly Faves

I cover high school sports. I also love music. I hope this (music playlist) will be a welcome diversion from other blog posts here.

Full disclosure: I’m 33 and from Georgia. I went to college at UGA in Athens, an underground music mecca. So, in addition to obsessing about the Bulldogs football team, I listened to lots of music. I live in downtown Chicago and go to as many live shows as I can.

I want this to be a post about tunes I’ve been spinning for the week. Henceforth, I will call it Five For Friday. I encourage everybody to listen and comment. I want to know what you are digging, too.
