March 2020 BONUS Podcast #2 (S2, E4)

I’m serving up yet another bonus podcast for all of you who are shut in and actively fighting the good fight against the spread of COVID-19.  I’m opening the vaults of the Jim Benson NE Ohio music collection as well as my own personal collection and focusing on the years 1988 to 1993 when I was personally involved in the Cleveland music scene as the guitarist & chief songwriter for North by Northwest.  Today’s selections feature some of my favorite bands and artists from that era.
