Tune of the Month

beats to relax/study to - Lofi Girl

This month I'm highlighting something a little different; this music stream that thousands listen to every day, worldwide. This modern easy listening station has been going strong for years now despite YouTube's few interferences, the latest being in February of 2020. It's continued popularity has even granted it a worthy meme status.
