Radio Show #4: Mean Town Blues

Four weeks in and still going strong! In our fourth edition we added some spectacular names to our rotation; while remaining true to our goal of airing ten consecutive episodes without playing the same band twice!

To be honest, when I started putting this together I wasn’t sure where to go. The flow was slow to make itself known. After a hand full of listens it began to come forth! I believe it to be a solid mix of songs, sounds, and flavors. It has been a mixed bag of a week for us here at the CTEP as my girlfriends car was broken into both before and after our vacation to Hampton Beach, NH. Here you go Brattleboro, you’ve earned it – Mean Town Blues!

This is it; the track listing for our fourth episode:
