Fleetwood Mac & The Ballroom Thieves

Episode 144

Coming up this Monday, in the very first episode of 2023, Aaron and Brent highlight music from New England duo who released their fourth album in 2022 and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band that was originally conceived as a hard-edged British blues combo in the late ’60s.

Formed while guitarist Martin Earley and former drummer Devin Mauch were attending Stonehill College, Aaron picks out three songs from The Ballroom Thieves.

Getting their name by combining the surnames of Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, Brent highlights three from Fleetwood Mac.
