For Lone Stranger Zach played 99% of all the music, and with the exception of one “cover” song he wrote, arranged, engineered, produced and performed every note of every song. This record contains Ska, Reggae and a bit of Hip Hop. Zachary is in the process of finishing the mixing, mastering, and manufacturing of a limited run of his first solo effort with the help of Paul Malinowski at Massive Sound recording studio. Mark will talk with The Lone Stranger, who will play three songs live during the broadcast.
