A long-form interview with William Schalda Jr., who played in more than one precursor to The Budos Band, and who has since also played with Charles Bradley, with NY garage rock legends The Realistics, with his family band The Sha La Das, and while wearing many hats for his solo project Billy Swivs. Will tells us funny stories from growing up in Staten Island, during which time he suffered tuba in the high school marching band.

Andy and Eric get high… courtesy of Oregon’s Cannabis Concierge, Mr. Joshua J. Taylor, who is the most knowledgable person you’ll ever meet when it comes to marijuana. Josh lays out the facts, drawing from his vast experience as a medical cannabis caregiver, columnist, event producer, and CEO. Our hosts – hanging onto their seats – add a musician’s perspective and together we learn how all this knowledge is rooted in American history and how it can be applied today.
