Sept. 28, 2017: Gentle Temper/Lauren Kelley/The Rationales

Max Bowen and David Mirabella 
First up on the show, we've got the folk duo of Gentle Temper, Ryan Meier and Marion Earley. From a recent open mic win, this amazing pair of musicians have a number of shows lined up. We talk about their family influences and what role they played in their musical careers. Ryan and Marion also play some great acoustic tunes.

Author Lauren Kelley is next with her children's book series, "Tuggie The Patriot Pup." Based in New England, the series chronicles some of the major events in our country's history, all through the eyes of a small dog. Lauren shares the making of the series and her plans to continue it for a full 13 books. Lauren will be a part of the upcoming Rhode Island Author Expo in December and we also talk about her experience at different conventions.

Closing out the show is David Mirabella of the band The Rationales. The ban recently released a new album, "Upstream," to rave reviews both locally and nationwide. The band has been around for a decade, and we talk about their growth both musically and as people. The Rationales have long been a part of Boston's Americana scene, and we talk about how it's changed and the many faces that make it up.
