Kicking the year off right with some great guests in the studio (and really testing the capacity/capabilities of the temporary studio space while renovations continue). John Smith joined me to talk about his new record It's True Because It Rhymes, available now on Marathon of Dope.
Romi Mayes came in and played a few live songs to give a bit of a taste of what her live album recording will be like this Friday, January 14, 2011. Great stuff as always.
