Podcast #224: Vacation

Tonight, we talk with Billy Sherwood, the man behind one of our all-time favorite, criminally underrated, albums/bands.The lads have made it through another summer sabbatical - as well as the giant boil on Houston's ass known as Hurricane Harvey - and celebrate with a long show that recounts their time off this year and the musical backdrop that supported it. Throw in some exotic beers from the four corners of the planet, and some killer tunes, and you get this XL-sized effort. Enjoy!

Next, Ragman snags a chat with the one and only Billy Sherwood, bassist/vocalist for World Trade, for a much anticipated conversation. Billy discusses Unify, the band's first album in over twenty years, as well the band's relationship with Chris Squire and Yes. This is an extra big post-summer show, so beer up - and HORNS UP!
