Musical Omnivores

the second part to the Saturday morning marathonG, and the “normal” three hour timeslot for greenarrowradio really set the ears in motion for me. I was thrilled to have a live on air chat with Kal from Rubblebucket, as they’ll be in Madison on the 30th. We talked new album “Omega La La”, what a live stage show would do to the unexpected and also what music is stuck inside the band’s bucket. The music went from coast to coast and I could start to smell the lotion being rubbed on certain songs as the heat turned up….a show built and planted for the musical omnivore in all of us….Check it:
