One of the perks of being a Rockin’ the Suburbs patron, is that you can call in and choose the show topic! Today, Keith Jacobsen of Grand Rapids, Michigan talks about bands that were big in other countries, but could not seem to find their footing in the United States. Keith keeps his focus on Canada’s Tragically Hip and England’s Elbow, while Jim & Patrick chime in with some of their own picks.
