On this week’s episode of Edge of Sports, we speak to the program manager for KGNU Community Radio and founder of the decades strong hip-hop group Council of Word Dave Ashton about the legacy of David Jolicoeur, aka Trugoy the Dove, who passed away last week, and his groundbreaking hip-hop group De La Soul.

We have Choice Words about this year’s Super Bowl. We’ll give a Just Stand Up award to Ron DeSantis for banning books and being an awful governor. We’ll also give a Just Sit Down award to the US alpine ski team for their climate change–themed uniforms, bringing awareness to such an important issue.
