Howdy,

I knew when I saw the title of Mark Jungers’ new CD I was gonna like it. More Like A Good Dog Than A Bad Cat didn’t disappoint, filled with gritty blues rock with some spine. This one’s been at the top of my personal play list all week. The other CD that caught my attention this week is Lauren Sheehan’s Rose City Ramble. She does traditional blues and folk tunes mostly with a few originals sprinkled in. She’s got a beautiful earthy voice which brings life to whatver she’s singing.

I’m way behind in podcast publishing, but stay tuned. I’ve got two eps in the pipeline so to speak.

Dig Deep,
Calvin
