On this week's podcast, one of our longtime favorite bands, Lovedrug, stops by the studio to perform a couple of songs from their latest album, Wild Blood. Be sure to check out the videos of their performance below. Plus, the legendary duo of Jesse Carey and Adam Smith joins us IN STUDIO for the entire podcast! This might be the equivalent of a white-elephant gift to some of you, and to others, the greatest gift you've ever received. Whatever it is, it's almost 2 hours long and a whole lot of fun, so sit back and enjoy!
A big thanks to the sponsor of Jesse's line, Audible.com, the leading provider of premium digital spoken audio information and entertainment on the Internet. They're giving all RELEVANT Podcast listeners a free audiobook! To get yours, click here.
