Weekly, The Grapevine plays a variety of music in R&B, Blues, Soul, Jazz and other related genres in a musical gumbo that is not commonly heard on many radio shows or stations. So much of radio today is segregated based on age demographics, that not only are several younger listeners (and artists) are growing up without a musical sense of history and reference (wondering who is the artist Jay-Z & Kayne West are rapping over on their song “Otis” for example) but the adult executives are failing to realize that it was that same sense of history that provided the blueprint for the music they grew up with. At age 32, Daniels is at the time period where knowledge of the musical past and present is naturally intertwined and can be presented in a way where a family can listen together and share together. Classic music from artists like Marvin Gaye, Cannonball Adderly, Hugh Masekla, Average White Band, and Howling Wolf are in rotation with artists of today such as Raphael Saadiq, Wynton Marsalis, Beyoncé, and Cedric Watson. At the same time several rising and independent artists are intertwined throughout the 2 hour broadcast from around the world.
