The Root Down show with DJ Firechild is music inspired by blues, rock, country, funk, hip-hop, R&B, and jazz. It is all about music that breaks it down, gets back to the basics, and just rocks. The root, the one, the first beat at the start of a song that makes you want to get up and dance are what this show is about. The Jimmy Smith song “Root Down (and get it)” sampled by the Beastie Boys on their classic 1995 EP has always hit me as an irresistible groove that makes me want to get up and dance and is part of my inspiration for this show. When James Brown leads into a set with his classic “Hit Me!” line and the first beat drops, that is the root down. When a song makes you want to move to the beat no matter what you are doing, that is the root down. This show is an eclectic exploration of many genres of music all inspired by the feeling I get from music that makes me want to move to the beat. I am passionate about sharing a mix of classic tracks and new music and hope that you join me in getting down with the root down every Monday from 4-6pm on KHOL, Jackson’s only community supported radio station,
