Kate Pierson ~ the B-52's
It's a great pleasure to have the amazing Kate Pierson as my guest on this episode. Before Covid pulled the plug on live music, I was mixing the live sound for the B-52's. I've known the band since their early days playing the Mudd Club in New York City, when they would drive from Athens, Georgia to get to the gig. The B's are a fantastic band to mix and work with. In a future episode, you can listen to my chat with Kate's bandmate, Fred Schneider. Thanks to all of you for plugging in over the last couple of months. I really appreciate it.
