Ah yes, Mother Nature in all her glory. New in May will be the Urban Monroes latest CD CD Appaloosa Daydream with the cut “Never My Love” going out on Poetman Records Radio Sampler that month. On Feb 8th the Urban Monroes released the single “Never My Love” making it available to DJ’s at Airplay Direct. Now, some of Urban Monroes' videos are also going to be featured on the Mountain Folk TV Show out of Pennsylvania. Mountain Folk has been on the air in one form or another for over 30 years.

These mothers were filled with joy and hope for the future for their young offspring. But in 2002, these mothers' hopes were dashed when the grown boyz converged together to form an alliance. There was much consternation from all corners as this axis of goobers became The Fabulous Bagasse Boyz.
