Rob talks Black rock on NPR

Kinda, sorta.

What I mean is that I had a wonderful opportunity to participate in a new segment on NPR’s "News and Notes with Farai Chideya," where she invited a few black bloggers to comment on hot topics in the news.  I used the topic of BET’s new show "Hot Ghetto Mess" to talk about how African Americans desperately need new paradigms and why we should more actively embrace Black rock.

For my first national broadcast media opportunity, I think I did alright.

But, please, decide for yourself. Listen to the segment here.
