This week is a new one for you listeners! You FINALLY get to hear me lose my shit and fangirl over a musician. haha No, I don’t really lose my shit, but I’m definitely pumped about these guys! The Flamin’ Groovies have been a must on all my mixes since I was 15. They’re a pioneering psych garage rock band from the ’60/’70s and if you haven’t heard of them, then you’re a freaking loser—get with it.

I chat with frontman Cyril Jordan and he tells me about dropping acid with Cream, going to ’70s orgy parties and hanging out with Jimi Hendrix. Plus, we listen to Jordan’s favorite tracks! You gotta tune in to this one.
