We’re taking a few weeks off and thought we’d replay some shows that you might have missed. Our first guest on 5 Songs (back in September 2013) was Marcus Crowder. Marcus has been the theater critic, jazz, pop music, and arts writer for the Sacramento Bee since May of 2000. A graduate of UC Davis and the American Film Institute he’s extremely pleased his love of music and his profession are so neatly aligned. The first concert he ever saw was Lee Michaels at the Cal Expo Exhibition Hall, the second was the Jimi Hendrix Experience at the Cal Expo racetrack.
This week’s guest on 5 Songs is Greg Lucas. Greg is the California State Librarian, and a lifelong music fan. He checks out the thread between Rex Harrison, The Grateful Dead and Bob Marley.
Lynnae Vana is a stage manager at the B Street Theatre in Sacramento. She has been all over the world soaking up sounds from Bach to Gogol Bordello!
This week’s guest is Roger Clark of Little Roger and The Goosebumps, and The Dinos. We find out whether “Stairway To Gilligan” was a blessing or a curse.
Dennis Newhall has worked as an announcer and program director at a number of popular stations including KZAP, KSFM, and KROY in Sacramento and KSJO in San Jose. Somehow he snuck a sixth track into the podcast, naughty boy!
John Cuniberti is a world class recording engineer. He has worked with Joe Satriani, Sammy Hagar, The Dead Kennedys, and many others.
Steve LaRosa is a lifelong music lover. As a long time television producer and reporter, he lucked out on his first piece for TV by landing an interview with Carlos Santana.
Jon Rubin is the lead singer of the power pop group The Rubinoos. He explores the thread between Sheb Wooley, Elvis Costello, and Wilson Pickett.
Mike Lidskin is a DJ on KUBU radio in Sacramento and creator of Twirl Radio. When it came down to the Beatles vs the Stones, he chose the Who!
