In our session we'll hear more about how they met, ways they bonded, the travels and... what the heck is a Melodic Polaroid? Paco, Tim... Welcome Home!

Whitehorse, Yukon is home for Gordie Tentrees. His days could be filled with family, hockey, skiing, running or he just might hit the road and tour through small towns and cities where he brings the characters and the character of the road to music. His newest project features Jaxson Haldane on a CD called Grit, showcasing the real, raw sound of a Gordie Tentrees performance. Since 2014 he's played 550 shows in 11 different countries, but when you meet him you feel like he's your good neighbor friend who plays music at your favorite hole in the wall.

On Friday January 19, 2018 Jonathan Bower joined us to talk about his new album "Light Years".  The adjunct professor/songwriter has turned his homework into his music. The new CD keeps you in touch with living the Alaska life. With an amazing crew of Deep State musicians, his new album is definitely his best work yet!
