As we change the calendar to 2019, we look back on some favorite episodes of the past year. Let’s start with our interview with Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia. He talks about his music fandom and plays a tune for us on his harmonica.
Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia is a big music fan. We interviewed him at his office on Capitol Hill, where he discussed his love of the Replacements, the Who and Doc Watson. Then he sang and played his harmonica for us!
Singer-songwriter Nicole Atkins and her amazing voice join Rockin’ the Suburbs for a backstage interview at the Black Cat in Washington, D.C. Nicole discusses the turmoil in her life that led to the songs on her latest album, “Goodnight Rhonda Lee.” Plus, she talks about working with Tommy Stinson and the benefits of knowing one very famous New Jerseyan.
You’ve heard a lot of smart people pick their favorite songs of 2016. Now hear from Jim & Patrick. Hint for song 1: There’s a Replacements connection. Hint for song 2: No one plays the saw on this track (at least we don’t think so).
