Angie Pykonen of KFAI’s In Your Ear was my guest this afternoon.

We gave away ticket to the Dave Alvin & The Guilty Women show coming up at Bunkers, Friday, August 27th.

Played a mini-tribute to drummer Richie Hayward, who passed on last week. He’s best known for his long history of work with Little Feat, but also played with many, many artists thru the years.
