A note from Chuck Clough and Ronnie Hirschberg:

UPDATE: We have hit our 1000 downloads and will be sending our donations shortly! Thanks to everyone for your support.  Please consider donating what you can to any of the many worthy charities that will assist those affected by the recent hurricanes.

The outpouring of support to those affected by the devastating Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma has been inspiring. These storms devastated the mainland and  the Caribbean and help is needed more than ever to support those organizations helping those who have been displaced and are without water and other necessities.
While we and many of our musical guests try to bring attention to and fundraise for worthy local charities, these are events that affect us all.
To that end, Chuck and Ron will donate one dollar for each download up to $1000 to the American Red Cross.
Please spread the word, have a listen - and thank you for your support.

Episode 058 - Ryan Miller

A conversation with Ryan Miller

A conversation with Ryan Miller

recorded September 24, 2017 

Maybe you ran into Ryan in an apple orchard in Vermont, or possibly downtown Burlington. Perhaps you’ve heard him on the radio as lead singer and guitarist in the acclaimed group Guster. 

Ryan has built a career in scoring for film and also hosts a PBS TV show aptly called Makin' Friends with Ryan Miller, where he travels the great state of Vermont speaking with “high functioning weirdos.” 

We discovered that Ryan is a creative force in many ways when he kindly invited us to his home for a great conversation.


Episode 057 - Justin Crowther

A conversation with Justin Crowther of the Burlington Record Plant

A conversation with Justin Crowther of the Burlington Record Plant

recorded September 23, 2017

While touring as a rock drummer for Vermont’s own Waylon Speed, Justin Crowther had a crazy idea: to manufacture vinyl records.

In three years he has produced thousands of unique records riding the vinyl wave in Burlington, VT.

The Burlington Record Plant is a labor of love and without any initial experience in production, Justin has become an innovator in the vinyl world, building on a foundation of hard work and determination.

Justin continues to play drums in a Burlington band called Blowtorch and he also has an instrumental album out with Sliding Spring – check out the episode notes for the track list of songs you’ll hear throughout our talk.
