Show Notes

It's the hardest working man in punk rock!

There are a few people who have an all-purpose “pass” to come on the podcast anytime they have something to talk about, and one of those is folk-punk die-hard Greg Rekus.

Greg is about to embark on (another) lengthy tour, kicking off with a local show at Blue Note Park on Sept. 7.

We talked about his neverending adventures on the road, performing solo vs. full band, busting out of a pandemic-affected writer’s block, and much more.

Want to hear more Greg? Catch him on episode 056 (Jan. 2014), 218 (Feb. 2017), and 450 (Jan. 2020).

This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company, who have brand new Witchpolice merch in the works! Watch for that!

WR202: UMFM Pledge-O-Rama Mixtape

Every year around this time, we head down to UMFM's studio to record a live on-air episode in support of the station's Pledge-O-Rama fundraiser. We've done it every year since 2013, but this year we ran into a conflict. Our scheduled live episode was the same night as our live Shoot First, Ask Questions Later event onstage at the Handsome Daughter ...so instead of a live episode, we aired (last Sunday) a clip show, essentially. We're calling it a "mixtape" because -- similar to last year's "mixtape" episode -- it's basically a compilation of some of the live performances we've had on the show over the past year. This certainly isn't a full document of the 2016 performances, though. There are a number of excellent live tunes that didn't fit due to time restrictions (and you can check those out here). ...
