  1. Hi,
    I was tuning into my local KBOO Portland station, instead of Healthwatch it was a surprising program from Pacifica I had never heard. All of it was captivating and motivating on the political, but I couldn’t catch the name of a Stevie Wonder song during the show. The title sounded like Spanish? Could that title please be conveyed to me? The date was July 28, 2017.
    Sincerely,
    Deanna

    • “Ngiculela – Es Una Historia – I Am Singing” by Stevie Wonder.
      Thanks for checking out “On the Ground” and letting us know KBOO is rocking the show in Portland!
