Episode #839

A smaller crop of new releases this week leads things off, but we do have the great privilege of premiering some amazing new music from Winnipeg’s own Sean Burns, created in isolation and coming out on the next BandCamp day. Most of today’s show is a love letter to a city that I love and visit often, Minneapolis, MN. The city has been at the forefront of racial tensions in the USA this week. Our hope is that things can move forward and get better without further violence. Sending some peace, love, and rock ‘n’ roll to all!

Episode #836

The wave of new music overwhelmed us again, and some of it was pretty rockin’ for your usual Tell the Band to Go Home episode, so the second hour reclaimed the moniker of Steel Belted Radio. We also paid tribute to another great artist who left us this weekend and retired another overused song title.

We here are the show wish to thank and send our love and admiration to all of the mothers out there who make all things possible. We appreciate and respect you all not just on Mother’s Day, but it is a good reminder to let you know how important you are!
