The B-52’s & JD McPherson

Episode 68

In Episode 68, Aaron and Brent highlight a singer-songwriter who has a retro sound rooted in the music of the 1950s and a band from Georgia known for their melodic harmonies, quirky lyrics, and dance-friendly songs.

With songs that evoke a vintage-inspired feel all while maintaining a contemporary sound, Aaron spotlights three songs from JD McPherson.

Taking their name from the bouffant hairstyles worn by band members Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson, Brent looks at three songs from The B-52’s.
