You Got Drive

This week's guest is Suldrew, perennial guest on a great many shows over the years — Burrito Justice, Long Lunchbreak, and more. Tonight he makes his debut here, playing songs that bring out our feelings behind the wheel. 

Meanwhile, we'll be celebrating The Beta Band's self-titled debut as it marks 20 years. It's an album that the band described as definitely the worst record we’ve ever made and it’s probably one of the worst records that’ll come out this year.” An assessment with which I …disagree. We'll be going into bat for this troubled, maligned, odd and yet forever endearing and compelling record.
