Grand Funk Railroad & Ripe

Episode 48

This week Aaron and Brent look at the music of a seven piece band that got their start at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and a trio that holds the distinction of selling out Shea Stadium faster than The Beatles.

Part jam band, part funk, part jazz and part soul, Aaron highlights three songs from the band Ripe.

Hailing from his hometown of Flint, Michigan, Brent spotlights music from Mark, Don and Mel: Grand Funk Railroad.
