Wax! Crackle! Pop! Show #31: Rock It to the Moon

Monday, July 21


Space is thee place, dear listener! And on this very night (that we originally aired), July 20, astronauts landed on our very own moon 45 years ago. So, for this episode, fellow music nut and astro-nut John Everett returns and helps me send y’all into orbit with 2 hours of moondawgs, moonchilds, and moonrawk!

We also give pause and look to the stars where celebrated actor James Garner and guitar wizard Johnny Winter have now returned to. Space is deep…
