Celebrate the holidays with Mister G on this week’s HFVS. Broadcasting from his recording studio deep in the woods of Western MA, the Latin GRAMMY Award winner and previous contributing writer for Hilltown Families serves up a multicultural musical feast featuring holiday classics by Ray Charles, B.B. King, Johnny Cash along with tracks by fellow children’s musicians. It’s a fiesta for the ears!

HFVS Guest DJ, Peter Alsop, selects songs that support building community while talking with kids and families about widening our circle of care. He touches upon speaking up when we see injustices and learning the craft of making safe places so we can work together to transform the world into a better place for all of us.
