BONUS! It’s 2018-06-08 Spare the Rock LIVE from WMCN!

Jul 06

We had a freakin’ blast on WMCN a month or so back, there as part of my college reunion. And here’s the show we did–huge thanks to the WMCN staff (especially Elizabeth) for helping out with the technical stuff (and remember, we’re now airing on WMCN on Thursdays at 2 pm).

We also had fun with our guests.  If you want to jump to them:

  • 35:49 – Scott Keever (who has a crowdfunding campaign now for his solo record) stops by for about 20 minutes
  • 1:09:34 – She Waits comes by and sings their wildlife songs
  • 1:40:26 – Adam Levy of Bunny Clogs (and Honeydogs and so much more) visited and did a lovely song

You can see most of the playlist here.
