Wax! Crackle! Pop! Show #20: Risen Ink or Doin’ time for our sins, it’s Jesus.

    A couple of CORRECTIONS! First off, I’ll keep practicing GETH-SA-MUH-NEE so the next time I play it, it’ll sound natural. I guess I need to watch JCS. Secondly, the Wheedle’s Groove cover of Jesus Christ Pose is actually from a group called Wheedle’s Groove! And the name of the record is Kearny Barton. I said on-air that KB was the singer when in actuality, HE is a Seattle producer & engineer. Wheedle’s Groove is a band formed after said documentary came out in 2009.

    Excuse these mistakes and others! Thanks for listening.
