Roomful of Blues has a new record out this week—we heard from Raisin’ a Ruckus around 6:30am, to raise body temps for those of us who had to get up face the single digits for the first time in a while. Bob Mould’s new record, District Line, made its way to the station—it will hit stores in a couple weeks. Local Dans Israel and Wilson helped us get up this morning, too.
