April 21, 2016: Riddle and the Stars/Arc Iris/The Chestnuts

Sam the Dealmaker and Ben the Beardmaster of The Chestnuts

Bobbo and Tracy Byrnes of The Fallen Stars and singer-songwriter Ben Riddle of Australia are first on deck to talk about their new collaborative project, "Riddle & The Stars." The three met while on tour and found their sounds meshed to well that an album together was the natural result. They're on tour now, with an upcoming show in Lowell on April 28.

Providence-based Arc Iris is next, and along with an ongoing tour of their own, we discuss the beautiful music videos that have been created for them by director Anne Beal. And as a special surprise, Anne shows up just in time to join us for a surprise interview to talk about how she visualized their sounds.

The Chestnuts were on two weeks ago for an amazing live set, and they're back once more. Is this the beginning of a Citywide residency? Maybe, but for now we talk about how this new band met, spin a brand new song, look to their plans for the summer, and discuss their desire for a future album release.

April 14, 2016: Gay Sin/Greg Adams

Gay Sin performing live 

Matt Martino returns as guest co-host, with some big news about his feature film, "Chainsaw Maidens From Hell!"

The band Gay Sin is on first with a stellar live set! They've got a ton of shows happening this spring and summer, and a demo in the works very soon. We talk about how this recently-formed band got together, and give tons of shout-outs to friends and fans.

An old friend returns! Singer-songwriter Greg Adams has new music in the works, but perhaps the bigger news is that he's moving to Nashville in May. After performing in New York and Boston, Greg says he's ready to take his music to the next level, and has already made a number of contacts in Nashville's music community.

April 7, 2016: The Chestnuts/George Woods

The Chestnuts
Matt Zappa returns for our first April episode! He's got big news to share about some upcoming tours that he's a part of.

The Chestnuts open the show with some sick live tunes. They're a recent formation, but they've been hard at work on recording some new music and playing shows.

George Woods, an old friend of the show, joins us to talk about his first new music since 2013, "I Am," an album that explores some of the more personal stories of his life. He's been running a PledgeMusic campaign, with some great success. He plays a live tune as well, and we give you a listen to his first single release, "Highest Love."

March 31, 2016: David Harris Lang/Kelly Shepherd and NoMad Stories/The Devils Twins

The Devils Twins
We welcome back author David Harris Lang to talk about his newest release, "A Devil In Hong Kong." David's thrillers draw upon his extensive time in the city, and reading them is like getting a guided tour of every corner. We talk to David about the many characters in this tale, and how he decides who to keep for the next story, and which ones don't make it.

Kelly Shepherd & NoMad Stories join us tonight to share their amazing jazz sounds. They've got a show on April 4 at PA's Lounge, and plenty of shows all over New England this spring and summer.

We welcome back the band The Devils Twins. They're among the many amazing bands playing as part of the Rock & Roll Rumble and will be taking the stage at ONCE Somerville on April 9.
If that wasn't awesome enough, they've also got new tunes that they just released!
