COVID-19 Resources as discussed on Community in Quarantine
I am co-hosting a radio program, Community in Quarantine, on Seattle’s KBFG, 107.3 FM (www.kbfgSeattle.org), which I hope is temporary. (We plan to air this show throughout the quarantine, and I hope that cannot be permanent.) We invite listeners to call in and talk about how they are coping, what they do to stay busy, and sane. Maybe our listeners have hints to keep their kids occupied whilst they work from home; whatever people want to talk about. We have this show, live Saturdays 9-11am Seattle time.
During the course of the show, we talk about available resources on the Internet, and, in case you are slow to pick up all the details, as I am, we provide herein links to those resources that we’ve either talked about on the radio show, Community in Quarantine, or we’ve meant to discuss.

Musicians that are livestreaming that you might want to learn to Love …
Ben Gibbard (from the Deathcab for Cutie channel):
Spencer Ludwig (I don’t know that he’s livestreaming, but I challengend a young, aspiring trumpet player to check him out)
Joss Stone (she needs to learn the meaning of “unique”; it means ‘one of a kind’, thus nothing is “very unique”, but recommended nonetheless)
…And places to find more livestreams / videos
Seattle’s Live Music Project (including the Little Gems Series)
Quarantunes, from London (? I think)
from NPR, a List Of Live Virtual Concerts To Watch During The Coronavirus Shutdown
Educational Resources / Science you can use: We could all use more science education, even the scientists among us.
Good Reading, if you need more (and I know that you do)
Nick Cave answers fan mail. Sounds quaint, but if you don’t know Nick Cave, he is a warm presence in a cruel world. Check him out.
