Caspar Babypants (Chris Ballew) is back with a brand new album called ‘Jump for Joy’! It was great to talk to him again. We keyed in on his new album and where some of the songs come from as well as how he creates such a warm sound on his records. It was so great to talk to Caspar again! Stay tuned all the way to the end of the episode to hear the brand new song ‘Pushy the Tug’.
Bike riding! It’s not as easy as it looks is it? I talked to Stephen and Peter about their experiences with riding and Wheel Kids. Following that I was able to talk to Tim, the person behind the idea. I’m not much of a bike rider myself, but it was so interesting to hear about what they do and what they teach to kids who love to ride bikes. Additionally, they gave some great tips on places to ride in Northern California!
It was an immense treat to talk to Lucky Diaz from Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band before the release of his new record ‘Made in LA’. We even got sorta deep on a few musical topics! Fun!! We talked a lot about his collaborations with several other musicians including past guests Andrew & Polly, Frances England, and Mista Cookie Jar. We got extra real when the conversation turned to tacos. Stay tuned all the way through to hear the (very very good) song ‘Magic Believers’.
How about a 19 year old Bluegrass phenom? Interested? AJ Lee is a tremendous singer, guitar player, and mandolin player who has just released a brand new record called ‘AJ Lee’. At the end of the episode you can hear her take on Gillian Welch’s ‘Look at Miss Ohio’. It’s beautiful. You don’t want to miss this conversation with the 9 time Northern California Bluegrass Singer of the Year award winner.
Sonshine and Broccoli totally go for it! Their music is positive, energetic and fun. That makes total sense, because talking to them was positive, energetic and fun! You’ve got to stay tuned all the way to the end to hear their song ‘A Good Night’. It legitimately rocks!
