iHearIC Radio - Episode 51: Trumpet Blossom Show Recap (12/02/2018)

Our last concert of 2018 was last night at Trumpet Blossom! KRUI wasn't locked this week, so Michele joined me in studio to play some live tracks from the concert and talk about them. We closed the show with a goofy new holiday tune by me and some of my friends, which you can find on my bandcamp: justinkcomer.bandcamp.com/album/chrismas-shoo

iHearIC Radio - Episode 50: Best Laid Plans (The Basement Special) (11/25/2018)

I'd been hyping this week's show for months. 3 hours broadcasting from KRUI. Loads of in-studio guests. Open phone lines. An amazing spectacle to celebrate the 50th episode of our radio show.

Then somebody mistakenly locked the studio and a foot of snow dropped on Iowa City.

Fortunately I have enough audio equipment at home to slap together a podcast recording session complete with single phone call center. Ashley helped co-host and last week's guest, Jon Wilson, braved the elements to join in the fun. Together we previewed this Saturday's concert and took calls from our friends for almost 3 hours!



Check out Jon's website and follow him on soundcloud: jonathanjawilson.com / soundcloud.com/jonathanjwilson
