The Sound of 13

Sundays at 6pm on WUOT through April

In light of the deaths of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and countless others, America had taken another look at topics of race, police brutality, and racial equity, and while there has been some positive movement, the struggle continues. In this show, host Garrett McQueen takes you back to the reconstruction era to take another look at the 13th Amendment, its historical and modern day reverberations, and some of the music that gives light to those stories.  

"The Sound of 13" was produced by Garrett McQueen in conjunction with KVNO-FM in Omaha, NE. For more information on Garrett and his work, please visit
