Last Sew & Tell in June! Can you believe the month is almost over? Neither can I… but the end of June brings a lot of good things, and BTR is all about celebrating them! The station is hosting Father’s Week in honor of dear ol’ dad, so there’s a lot of cool rock ‘n roll content you should check out, like Monday’s article on raiding dad’s record collection.

In honor of Father’s Week (and because with July, the summer beach season kicks it into high gear) today’s Sew & Tell guest is Omer Levy, whose family has owned and run a textile company in Los Angeles for several decades. They’ve recently launched their own line of products called Fresco Towels, featuring beautiful bath and beach towels made from the highest quality Turkish cotton, and printed with patterns designed by the Levy family. On today’s show, Omer talks about the start of Fresco, the products they offer, and what it’s like to keep work in the family.

Plus, last but certainly not least, we are also celebrating the Tuesday release of Bon Iver’s long-awaited sophomore album! !! Catch the first track at the end of today’s show, and in the meantime enjoy some dad-related indie songs from Levek, Iron & Wine, Glasvegas, and Arcade Fire. Your Friday is fashionably fun on BTR!
