Peter Anspach of Goose
Rising stars Goose got on the COVID-19, pandemic, isolation train pretty quickly back in the spring, and created a virtual summer event called "Bingo Tour" that consisted of four shows and six additional days of activities for their community and fans all live streamed for a fee in late June.. Those shows and indeed the entire programming for "Bingo Tour" were very well regarded and well attended. On November 25th, the band will release a video compilation of those live shows, along with a 55 minute behind the scenes look into the making of what was an unprecedented week of digital content. I caught up with Peter Anspach, the band's keyboard and occasional guitar player, to talk about the event, and what fans can expect from the Bingo Tour Movie. Our conversation started when I asked specifically about pioneering this notion of creating an event for their fans and how quickly they got the ball rolling on creating it. For more on the band, or to get the Bingo Tour Movie visit  First Song: 00:14: Hot Tea Interview Begins: 14:16 Extro Song: 42:09: Creatures See for privacy information.

Mike Gantzer of Aqueous
I’ve been a fan of Aqueous for quite some time and have always been impressed with Mike Gantzer’s approach to the band’s evolution. With the Covid-19 pandemic still in our midst, bands like Aqueous are short on options to play live and make a living. So with the release of the Ardmore concert, I decided to catch up with Mike Gantzer and find out what he and his band mates are up to.  First Song: 00:14: 6s and 7s Interview Begins: 11:14 Extro Song: 37:54: Good Days See for privacy information.

Horseshoes And Hand Grenades
If this pandemic, and the general malaise of 2020 has taught me anything, it is to be prepared for just about anything. So when word broke earlier this week that we would be getting some new music from Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, sooner rather than later, I was psyched to hook up with Adam Greuel of the band to talk about Miles in Blue, the band's forthcoming release, due out November 25th. Of course aside from talking about music, and the new record, we had time for Greuel's other project Berens and Greuel, and obviously the Green Bay Packers. Adam and I spoke as he was making his way around Wisconsin to a video shoot in Milwuakee ... For more on the Horseshoes and Hand Grenades visit First Song: 00:14: Broke Interview Begins: 03:35 Extro Song: 37:44: Ope Nope See for privacy information.
