RSR PC 041 Amnesiac, Mahoney & Danny

Amnesiac’s Mahoney and Danny are our guests this month on the podcast. We talk about how much Danny worships the ground Maynard walks on and that’s pretty much it (this is sarcastic and you’ll get it when you listen).  We talk about how Amnesiac came about as a band and what it’s like to be a band right now in the time of Covid 19. We, as usual, start it off by talking about the music we’re listening to!

We talk about Gene Simmons and Kiss and also Scorpions.  Honestly, way too much talk about Puscifer, but it’s an entertaining episode so stop reading this and just listen.

On this episode we talk about our favorite releases of 2020. Josh and Rick talk amongst themselves including a list submitted by Caren.  This is our first episode back in action since beginning our move and we glory in the reverb of the new big space!

RSR PC 037 Ben Michael (WESU General Manager)

We talked to Ben Michael on episode 37. Ben is the General Manager of WESU, Middletown – 88.1FM, wesufm.org.  We talk to Ben about the current state of the station specifically and about what it’s like to operate in pandemic conditions at a University – Wesleyan in this case.

Ben Michael

We talked about the mission of WESU, the part it plays in the community and of some particular shows of interest on there. Some history of the station is touched on as well as some noted alumni. And we talk to Ben about his personal history with the station and with music in general and about his homestead farm with his mule and donkey and chickens and goats!

We once again recorded outside in our back parking lot to maintain a nice social distance and it once again led to us dealing with the elements – especially some strong winds and of course the passing trains.
