The finest interview/discussion show on music and musicians that mean a whole hell of a lot to certain people. Why we do what we do?, Rocker ennui, amusing anecdotes, and incredible rock music that does not forget to rock.
Neutron is completely exhausted from rock ‘n roll double header the night before. So he wanders around more than usual and laughs at nothing quite a bit more. Also he talks to the talented Melissa Dale Neal of Dark Beach and Bryan Giles the guitarist for Red Fang.
