Rebecca Arkin is an attorney in Manhattan. She's grounded, driven, and successful. When a legal battle breaks out for control of the company, it falls to Rebecca to keep her family from collapsing, all while trying desperately to extricate herself from their grasp. Unfortunately, she’s also the granddaughter of Ben Arkin, an artist who has never sold a piece, and the daughter of Oliver Arkin, who — along with his sisters — runs a record company that has never had a hit.
Some artists might be total dicks, but we still go to their show and ‘ooh’ and ‘ah’ at their work. Why the hell do we still do that? BTRtoday explores!

Another happy Saturday here at Garbage Garage! Today we’re starting off the show with a half hour of really good, relaxing, non-coffee-shop-esque folk. With bands like Mountain Man and S. Carey I think you’re really going to enjoy chilling out to it. And we’ve got a great mix of new and old on the rest of the show. Remember to check out BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and SoundCloud.
Your midweek soundtrack on BTR starts with DJRePete. He’s spinning addictive, trippy alternative from Kelley Stoltz and Sunwolf, electronica crossover with High Highs and Line & Circle, and funk with Lettuce and Low Cut Connie. Plus, hit up a throwback by Irish-Indian mashup band Delhi 2 Dublin ahead of their appearance at this weekend’s Jaipur Literature Festival. And rewind a few years back for a throwback set spanning the globe and the BTR archives from Alan Wilkis to B. Fleischmann. All that and more on the Wednesday show with DJRePete!
