Episode 706 ~ January 20th, 2022: In Memory of Megan

Megan McDonald of Fine Mist (and other bands) died earlier this week, so I wanted to take this hour to remember her, some of the music that she made, and some of the interviews I did with her over the years. I have a lot of fond memories of Megan, and of being a part of FAN MIST and singing along with her at shows. She was one-of-a-kind, and it's heartbreaking that she's gone. My condolences to her family, friends, loved ones, and Sadie & Ivy.
