I mention every week because it's so important - support the artists you hear on the Big Beat and WXRT by buying their music from, whenever you can, a local, independent, or family-owned music store and, when you head out crate diving, wear a mask and let me know what you find! Connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. My handle on all three of 'em is RyanArnoldRocks.
If you haven't voted already, vote on Tuesday. If you need some help making your plan to get to your polling place, Vote411.org can help.
Your pal,-Ryan A.
