Today was the first show of Friday Groove Radio. On this show, we had DJ Ella and she played her upbeat tracks, which was followed by a commentary by Nila. Jade and Nick gave us motivating news on problems with pollution in lakes and a report on autopilot cars and many other current events. Afterwards, DJ Aster took us on a journey through the world of hip-hop artists such as Chris Brown and Fetty Wap. Then we had a review by Leo with hilarious criticism of his favorite movie, “The Room”. Next, came  a commentary by Garrison about the story of him trying to find his uncle he had not seen in ages. Then a review by Syy on the new Will Smith comedy “Focus.”  Last was DJ E, who played “turnt” tracks and finally, we closed with a commentary by Ramona about street performing.
