Geeks and Beats podcast, episode 230: Dadbod Garage Band

Most who played in a garage band dodged the Wedding Singer bullet. But they’re the inspiration for your favourite music, and some of the biggest albums were recorded in garages. We’ll play you the original version of Springsteen’s recording of Born in the USA. It’ll blow your mind. Shaun Jette, G&B’s live truck director and frontman for Porch Stool Jam, opens the mic to review the Roland Rubix 44 for Dadbods everywhere still rocking out on weekends. We’ll also find out what Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark’s original band name was. It was awkward. But not as awkward as the show opening. 

Here’s a link to the G&B where Shaun reviews the Roland Rubix 44.
