Remembering musical powerhouse and creative spirit, Steve Kramer. With a special interview from friend and fellow musician, Kristian Hoffman. Kristian and Steve played in the third (and final) line-up of the Contortions, with James Chance and Bradley Field; and were roommates for a spell in New York before the "Minneapolis Mafia" returned to Minnesota and formed the Wallets. A heartfelt tribute to a gifted and eclectic artist.

Catch Kristian Hoffman's fabulous internet radio show, Pepperland Spicerack, every Sunday afteroon on Luxuria Music.
