At 10:30 Mark talks with Dave Tanner who was sidelined from touring in 2020, so he began creating new songs. By fall, Dave had nine heartfelt songs and he invited several guest artists he has played in bands with, over the years, to help complete the album, PASSERINE DREAM, in April 2021. Special guests include: Erik Voeks; Marty Scott of Liverpool Legends; John Perrin of NRBQ; Albert Bickley of The Depth and The Whisper; Steve Davis of Liverpool: A Tribute to The Beatles; and John Countryman of Million Dollar Quartet. “As we went along and tracks came together, we couldn’t help but notice that a theme was emerging,” Tanner said. “This is an album about hope. Passerine Dream was mixed by Paul Malinowski at Massive Sound Studios and mastered by Mike Nolte at Eureka Mastering. More info at: http://www.passerinedream.bandcamp.com

At 11:00 the Kansas City based band, Quite Frankly joins Mark to talk about their latest single, “Blue/Red” released on May 14, 2021. Bassist Scout Matthews formed this 5-piece band in 2016 when she was in middle school.

Quite Frankly has opened for The Greeting Committee, The Darbies, John Corabi, The Jacks, LA Guns, and were the youngest winners of the Nelson Atkins Battle of The Bands 2018.
