New York - Hosted by Amon Focus, the New York Said podcast features in-depth conversations with people you don't often hear from, to hear things that aren't often shared (said), spotlighting life in New York.
Fireworks in the Hood
It's been a minute. Happy New Year. It's snowing outside. It's cold in New York. So you know what that means, it's time to release another new episode of "Sounds of the City". This summer I went back to my old neighborhood in Southside Jamaica, Queens to record the fireworks. I recorded about four hours of the festivities that night, and then edited it down into a nice 25.
It's not boom, boom, boom consecutively throughout the whole episode but it is s an orchestration.
If you really want to get into this episode, I highly suggest you go somewhere quiet. Close your eyes, put on some headphones and let your imagination be your guide.
I'm out of here. I love y'all. Peace.
