What parents don’t try to get the kids to like their music? Sometimes it works, but not usually. Friends Kevin Goff and Dan Gursky join the show and discuss this phenomenon with Jim & Patrick.
The only CD our friend Dan Gursky owns is a bargain-bin Bangles greatest hits. We discuss. That’s a show.
Few music scenes seemed as vibrant as Athens GA in the 1980s. Friend Kevin Goff talks about his experiences there, plus the whole gang discusses the documentary “Athens GA Inside/Out” and some of the great bands that emerged from that college town.
Fear not, band nerds, you too can play on a rock song. Guest Dan Gursky, a French horn player, spins three famous tunes that feature that brass instrument. Also joining us in the basement this week is friend Kevin Goff.
A beloved alternative band from back in the day, The Jesus and Mary Chain release their first album in 19 years. Jim & Patrick discuss this perhaps-underappreciated band.
We conclude our conversation with Dave Bielanko from Marah. He talks about the band’s famous fans (Stephen King! Bruce Springsteen!) and about what it would be like to break big.
Our interview with Dave Bielanko of Marah continues. He talks about the art of songwriting (it’s brilliant!) and the band’s ambitious album “Mountain Minstrelsy of Pennsylvania.”
We interview Dave Bielanko of Marah, a rock band with a passionate fan base that never could quite catch the breaks for widespread success. If you don’t know them, here’s your chance to join the true believers.
We lost a legend over the weekend. Chuck Berry died at 90 years old. Jim & Patrick, plus special guests, discuss his enormous impact.
