Arts & Culture

Welcome to the Echo Chamber's Neil Armstrong commemorative show of Space Month, the episode we like to call "Lunar Lunacy."  Scanning a wee bit down the playlist, past the new Jah Wobble (with Invaders of the Heart), Ancient Astronauts, and Culture ("Intergalactic Excursion"),  we come across Astralasia, who named their tune "Univeria Zekt" after a band which was a Christian Vander side project.

We speak with Jay Parini about his newly released volume of poems, New and Collected Poems, 1975-2015. He is also the author of The Last Station, made into an Academy Award-nominated film starring Helen Mirren and Christopher Plummer, as well as many other novels and biographies, including his most recent, Empire of Self: A Life of Gore Vidal.

Pre-recorded music show.

Special guest is Hugh Myrone more here: we discuss his influences as a kick ass guitarist as well as his side project, SNAKED (pronounced S-Naked).  Premieres from Slanger and Tape Loader
