Secret star of this episode is Neil Young. Two of his songs recently saw inspiring covers. Kent State murders are having a 45 year anniversary this year. Neil wrote a song about the event and this year, Cleveland band Obnox recorded a cover. A totally different sounding Colleen Rennison’s new album is named after a [...]

First Base (Hozac)
