It's not widely known that one of MT's local music freelance writers, Jonathan Cunningham, is now doing well manhandling the music editor post at New Times Broward-Palm Beach. Here Cunningham blogs with updates on former Detroiter House Shoes, in particularly the DJ's podcast involvement with artist/musician collective HVW8. The L.A.-based House Shoes is, you'll note, a longtime fave of ours, and not just because he has always been down with the Dilla tradition of helping out hometowners. Search the MT archives for many pieces on House Shoes from over the years.
