Music is an important part of Oakland’s identity and culture. Musical arts, just like people, are diverse, rich in history, emotional, and have the power to communicate impactful messages. Music has played a vital role in Oakland’s history, and we would like to keep that tradition going. Roots Radio is a special collaboration between Oakland Roots and Oakland’s very own Pandora Music.
ROOTS RADIO 001 - ORIGINS
Music has an amazing ability to bring people together. Our team is full of different people with different backgrounds. Origins is Roots Radio’s first-ever playlist, and features our five Oakland raised professional soccer players. You have to know where you come from in order to know where you are going. Origins is a celebration of Oakland and a celebration of our first game ever at Laney College on August 31st.
