This week’s episode is all about the very influential, Weezer. We sat down with freelance visual designer, Robyn Kenner, and Portland musician Jeff Beam. We talk about our favorite albums, songs, and have the “fans vs band” debate. It’s obvious that some of our crew is more well-versed in Weezer than others, but it’s pretty easy to know something about at least one Weezer song, right?

You can listen to Jeff here at jeffbeammusic.com and see Robyn’s work here at robynkenner.com

Speaking of which, this week we sat down with Charlie Gaylord of the 25 year old, and still going strong, Crooked Cove.

Charlie explained to us what the difference between duplication and replication is, talked about his radio show Greetings From Area Code 207 (which can be heard at 9am on Sundays on WBLM), and how the only thing that scares him about the future is the lack of CD players in the world.

Greetings From Area Code 207 Volume 9 from Cornmeal Records is available at any Bullmoose location. It features many unreleased tracks from local artists, and contains the featured music in this episode.
