Today's show kicks off with a mayerforceone track courtesy of Mr. Mayer himself.... good stuff and we hope to hear a full album from that camp in the near future. We also have the introduction of the old 90's Moscow band Royball. I have to admit that I wasn't the biggest fan of theirs, but guitarist Carlos Lantz is a fellow Lewiston High School alumni and was hands down the best guitarist in our school... his talents are on display here. Check out for info about the upcoming Practice New Year's Eve benefit at the Bouquet...
