Show Notes

This isn't a normal episode of the podcast. There's no interview, no format... it's almost two unedited hours of live music recorded in my backyard. New York singer-songwriter (and frontman of the legendary Slackers) [Vic Ruggiero](http://www.facebook.com/vicruggiero) earlier this month, and he stopped by the house for an intimate solo set on my deck. This 'episode' is a relatively lo-fi recording of the full show. Thanks to Winnipeg ska legend [Greg Milka Crowe](http://myspace.com/gregmilkacrowe) for opening the show (unfortunately I didn't get his set recorded), to Ian Lodewyks (who plays bass for Vic on some of these songs) for his major role in making this surreal experience a reality, and to everyone who came out to enjoy a world-class artist in such a casual setting. I've been a fan of Vic's music for over 20 years, and this was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I'm so glad it happened, and I'm glad I'm able to share it, in some way, with the rest of you. Enjoy. We'll be back to your regularly-scheduled episodes of Witchpolice Radio on Wednesday.
