Attention BTR listeners, there is a new Alex Bleeker & The Freaks album out, Home Far Away, and I am rejoicing to the the musical powers that be big time.

Also new on the show today are fun tracks from The Mantles and Sonny & The Sunsets. And don't forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, and Pinterest to stay up to date on the station!
