Songs for Jenna Podcast
Ryan Cassidy
Ryan pairs his most-loved 90's indie songs with new favorites. His sister Jenna is his reluctant audience who'd rather be tailgating a Dave Matthews concert.
EP21 - Rat Fancy
Diana and Greg from Rat Fancy play guest DJ and talk with us about their new "Suck a Lemon" EP. We hear a two new Rat Fancy songs as well as a couple of their fave indie pop songs from the 90s. Then we all do shots, suck lemons, and play a drinking game watching The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Fancy that!
