Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re all still putting in the effort to gather with family and friends for this Fourth of July weekend in what ways we can. While this year’s barbecues will involve masks and social distancing, you can still have a good time! Music is always a great way to boost your mood, and can even help with getting in the holiday spirit. So, here are some songs about the U.S.A. to celebrate American independence.
Now through July 17th, WERS and Atomic Coffee Roasters are teaming up together to help you get a jumpstart to your summer. When you make a donation today, we’ll thank you with some delicious freshly roasted whole bean coffee courtesy of our friends over at Atomic!
Check out the amazing packages we’ve got to offer!
