March 2020 BONUS Podcast (S2, E3)

My regular job is as a first responder, so during the COVID-19 pandemic, my life now consists of hours at work and then some time at home to eat, sleep and try to relax before the process repeats. I’m not complaining – I love my job and in these uncertain times, anything I can do to lessen the anxiety in the community, I embrace. One of the things I’ve found myself doing to relax during these strange days is listening to even more NE Ohio music so why not draft a few play lists and podcast a little more often than monthly? So to keep me focused and occasionally distracted, it’s bonus time for you!

No theme, I’m just offering some of my favorite tunes including new or fairly recent material from the Lowlies, the Outsiders, Signal 30, the Bounty and Skydragster. Oh, and a set featuring Columbus rockers who liked hanging out in Cleveland frequently and often. Oh, and if you haven’t already, you need to listen to Season 2, Episode 2 last week for my interview with Wild Giraffes drummer/Beat Farm and Herb Jackson Records co-owner, Alan McGinty. Sit back, put you earbuds on and “Listen.”
