Italy, hard hit by the coronavirus, has imposed a nationwide lockdown. While they ride it out, Italians have taken to their balconies to sing and play music to each other in solidarity. If (or perhaps when) you find yourself in a similar situation, what song would you sing or play to share with your neighbors? We'll listen together after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Cat Stevens "If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out"

Canned Heat "Let's Work Together"

Bob Marley and The Wailers "Three Little Birds"

Jackie DeShannon "Put a Little Love in Your Heart"

The Kinks "Better Things"

Sister Sledge "We Are Family"
