Episode #2 12/21/17 The "One hit wonder' episode
December 21, 2017 8:00pm
This weeks episode inspired by a thread on a Facebook page that asked the question "Which band had only one release and was smewhat influential". Posed by Jim granato, former Radio Valencia DJ and local filmaker. Some of what was played tonight was actually submitted by folks in that thread while others were my own interpretation of that category. Also I paid homage to the recently passed Ralph Carney horn player to the stars and former SF resident by highligting some of his work from the 70's while he was still based in Akron Ohio.
