Brainwaves – April 19, 2022 – An episode not to pass over

It’s Passover week and you know what that means – two hours of eclectic alternative indie music for the holiday. Themed songs all about Egypt, slaves, princes, snakes, frogs, blood, bread and an ol’ man named (Amos) Moses. It’s coming up on this week’s annual Brainwaves Passover special!
