BIRP 116 - KEEP ON PUSHIN'

ESongs of protest, pride, anger, survival, frustration, despair, hope and struggle, a struggle that's been going on for far too long. Sadly, when a lot of these songs first appeared the artists who wrote them probably had no idea that they'd still be relevant, still be fighting for peace & equality some 40 - 50 years ago. If you're still struggle with how we got here or looking for causes you can donate to here is a small list of resources. Thank you for listening, go in peace.

BIRP 115 - "Scary" Larry Montet

EHi, this is Brandon, and on today's episode I'll be speaking with musician "Scary" Larry Montet, who has been in and around the Chicago music scene for more than 30 years. Not only that but he is also my cousin. We talk about some the bands that were in and around Blue Island back in the early days, some of the joints he hung out at on the north side, and the difficulties of keeping a band together. His long running band The Gravetones have a new record that they are up and we'll take a quick listen to one of the tracks 2 pennies 1 ride. Thank for listening.

Episode 113 - Andre Williams

EAndre Williams made music for more than 60 years and played everything from soul, to country, to garage and more. Even though he co-wrote one of the most used songs movies & TV his contribution to the world of music is often over looked. Not only that but his raw brand of soul, humor, and crude talking style of singing is often sighted as an early influence on rap. In other words, this episode is long over due and I apologize.
