saturday june 6 | american cancer society

La Junta LA, the American Cancer Society, and ACS California are coming together on Saturday, June 6th for “Real Men Wear Pink”, an online awareness campaign and emergency response fundraiser to help ease the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. It’s a ‘Virtual DJ Dance Party’ being held across the country on a series of dates during the month-long campaign, with La Junta’s turn to add to the donation total for two hours on the above date. Cancer won’t stop. Neither can we.

We hope to get this message out across all platforms by word of mouth, a tag, a share, etc. so please help spread the word! You can view the lives tream and donate via tiltify.com (see link below), with simulcasts on Instagram Live and Facebook to help connect us in as many ways as possible.

music mix | marina soul club 002

MSC MIX 002 Promo Image

I posted the second and latest Marina Soul Club LA mix this past Sunday via my social media outlets, but I’m just getting around to it here on the ol’ weblog. It’s just in time for the midweek grind though. It’s the perfect hour of smooth listening whether you’re working on spreadsheets, pushing paper across your desk, or sifting through mostly useless emails. I promote putting your feet up and tuning in just after dinner with a glass of wine in hand 🙂 Find music by The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Firefall, Olivia Newton John, Leo Sayer, George Benson, Steely Dan, Ned Doheny, Kalapana and more. 15 songs, 56 minutes. Grab a glass of pinot and go!
