When an icon ascends to a higher conciseness of being, there is always another to icon to step in and continue important conversations the people need to hear. Tune in on Monday, August 1 (6AM) to Twin Cities News Talk Radio’s “Up and At Em” AM 1130/FM 103.5 – (click here for live stream-iHeartRadio) as the “Angry Black Guy” Donny Allen joins Lump (Sam) and host, Mr. Andrew Lee for a program that be to say the least an euphony (the quality of being pleasing to the ear, especially through a harmonious combination of words) of dialog.
