First of all for those of you who don’t know, the Ask Now show will begin airing on DCTV and DCTV.com in January. However, people who are subscribed will get to see the interviews before they air via AskKirbyCarroll.net on Youtube! SO if you’re reading this I’m guessing you are one of those people!

When I was younger and I got in trouble my parents had a few things they would do to punish me for my actions. However, by far the worst one was taking my stereo. I literally felt like I couldn’t function without it. My music heads understand—its like how do I work, how do I sleep, how do I pregame!? It can be tragic.
So of course when I was looking through #AskNow questions I had to pick the one that related to music. A Howard student emailed in and asked, “do you think music is influencing our youth positively or negatively?” I had a convo with Sunni and the City, a radio host and socialite in the DC area to help me adequately and honestly answer this question.
Sunni is someone who is really dedicated to the community and women empowerment but she also really likes hip-hop and pop culture. It was a pleasure talking to her and I feel like she gave a very thoro and honest answer to the question. She also gave us a little background into what its like being a female radio host in one of the biggest markets in the country.
I recommend this interview to any conscious person, music lover, individual interested in working in media, or resident of the DMV area.
