iVoryTowerz Radio: The Spirit of Grunge

Spirits float in the ether alongside the signal of the underground podcast this week. Time to give our respects to the dearly departed. So there's a special tribute this week to the recently departed Danny Federici of the E St. Band, not to mention the patron saint of grunge, Kurt Cobain. By tracing some of Cobain's influences, this podcast also gives a succinct history of grunge. But other sounds find their way into the mix too from blues to punk to heavy metal, and we cover about 30 years of rock in the process. So, turn this up to 11 and get in the spirit of these rock 'n roll proceedings!
