Episode #813

Today, a sad farewell to one of the biggest influences on my musical development and one of the greatest live performers I’ve seen, the great John Mann of Spirit of the West. He lost his battle with Alzheimer’s this week, but his spirit will live on through the great music that he made. We heard a lot of it on this episode, but there’s so much more we couldn’t get to. We also heard some great requests, talked about some exciting upcoming shows and spun some great new tunes.
