Shout! Black Gospel Music Moments explores the distinctly African-American sound of the "Golden Age of Gospel" (1945-1975). The series celebrates this fertile musical period in American history, presenting cultural snapshots that reveal the depth of a people, their community, and the influence they have had on the rest of American music.

Throughout February, listen to Shout! on both of our stations. We have the segment each weekday at 12:55 p.m. on Classical 90.5FM and at 12:33 p.m. on KBIA 91.3FM.
