9bills Collective Take Over Foundation FM with The Date Connoisseur! | @TheDateConnoisseur @KamillahRose @foundationfm

Priya (The Date Connoisseur) & Nelson (9bills)

We Took Over ‘The Guide’ on ‘The Brunch Show’ with Kamilla Rose

We were asked to take over a segment on female led radio station Foundation.FM. They regularly collaborate with “sick” collectives to provide ‘The Guide’ on events and new music on Kamilla Rose’s ‘The Brunch Show’. With Corona in full effect we certainly weren’t hosting any 9bills parties  so we reached out to someone with the best knowledge of things to do, The Date Connoisseur!
