WTF: Dave Brockie Lives!

"What the Fontaine?!: You never know what you'll hear next on this fun mix of tunes from across the decades and musical genres."

Tonight 9-11pmEDT it's a special re-broadcast edtion of What The Fontaine?! This week marked the one-year anniversary of Dave Brockie's passing. I've got two special shows this weekend in his honor. Tonight I'm playing an interview with Dave + Randy Blythe (Lamb of God) from August 2012, seven days after Randy got outta jail in Prague and flew back to the U.S. Very interesting conversation. THEN tomorrow / Saturday 6-8pmEDT I'm hosting the local band show (River City Limits) and we're gonna do a live Dave tribute. Looks like it's gonna be Randy Blythe (LoG), Russ Bahorsky (Death Piggy), Chris Bopst (early GWAR), Michael Bishop (GWAR, Kepone), possibly others. Tune in both times!!
