All the Apparatus performs in the studio

Mon, 03/19/2012

One of Portland's favorite street bands, All the Apparatus, came down to the studio the Friday before the show to record a few songs for us. They are all upstanding young people, with actual jobs, and they all couldn't come down to the show in the middle of a Monday afternoon!  So, Captain Jon recorded them last week, and we replayed it for this show with three of the band members, Al, Mallory and Gena joining us in the air room. We also talked by phone to Sabrina, who's travels have brought her to Austin, Texas. Where she reports on the South by Southwest Music Festival. And she has adopted a young fox as a pet!(pictured below)
