May 10, 2020

Ryan Newell, lead guitarist for Sister Hazel, joins us to talk all things hazelnut: from their fan-centric approach to putting their music out to the masses; their natural progression in the country music genre (while still holding onto their pop-rock roots); the impressive roster of cover songs they've performed & released over the years; their yearly special events (and how COVID-19 has impacted them); the new beer "Ale For You" which has recently been launched; their latest album "Elements" which combines their last 4 EPs (Water,” “Wind,” “Fire” & “Earth”) and how the EP approach might be the avenue in which the band continues to release new music!

Ep. 22: Children’s Music Icon Laurie Berkner On Her “Rocketship Run” To The Top Of The Kindie Music Scene

May 15, 2019

If you have children, then the name Laurie Berkner will be very familiar to you, as she has been a staple of children's music for the last 20 years. In this episode: We sit down with Laurie to discuss her entrepreneurial roots as a musician and indie label owner, the fact that she graduated high school with John Popper from Blues Traveler and Chris Barron from the Spin Doctors, her approach to writing music for children that resonates with parents, her work on off-broadway musicals and her views on streaming music vs. the physical medium for the indie artist. We also dig deep and FINALLY get to the bottom of who Victor Vito and Freddie Vasco REALLY are (you're welcome parents!)

Ep. 12: Flying Beneath The Radar w. Jim Santora, Author Of “Underrated Rock Book”

January 31, 2019

An album's sales doesn't necessarily equate to how it will stand against the test of time. In this episode: Jim Santora, author of "Underrated Rock Book: The 200 Most Overlooked Albums 1970-2015," joins us to re-discover some amazing rock albums that simply aren't heralded like they maybe should be. We dive deep into the book to dish on underrated classics from bands such as: Kiss, Boston, Beastie Boys, Styx, Blues Traveler, Cheap Trick, Kings X, Our Lady Peace, The Cars, AC/DC and...Kelly Clarkson?! Maybe we're kidding, maybe we're not, you'll have to tune in (or, more importantly, read the book) to find out!!
