Subject: Antidote of Song # Daily 12 noon Eastern time, U.S
ONGOING - DIFFERENT THEME EACH WEEK, DIFFERENT SINGER EVERY DAY From the FacebookMudcat fb announcements page:

Tune in at 12 Noon Eastern U.S. Time today [November 1, 2021], when Stephen Winick and I will be in our costumes for Día de Muertos season, hosting Juan Díes (on the right in the photo), who will be performing "La Bruja" on the first day of Archive Challenge Week on the Daily Antidote of Song. Juan performed the song at the Library of Congress with his group Sones de México ensemble in 2015. At the same time, he led a workshop in writing corridos, or Mexican ballads, and performed with the Poet Laureate, Juan Felipe Herrera (on the left in the photo), during Herrera's inaugural reading. Díes is performing the song as an "Archive Challenge," in which artists perform songs from the American Folklife Center Archive. Although the official Day of the Dead or Día de Muertos is tomorrow, in Mexico it's celebrated as a multi-day holiday including November 1. Join the fun at the link below! ONGOING
Note - there will be other song challenges each day of the week, details given on the above link.
