Labor of Love Ping Pong Planetary Rock with Katie Gentile

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

An annual holiday tradition: Rob Weisberg and Katie Gentile (Rob's longtime sidekick, academic, author, open-water swimmer and violinist in the bands The Special Pillow and The Mad Scene) play "radio ping-pong", alternating tracks. Rob bounces rock-tinged world music off Katie's classic indie rock (with a special emphasis on vintage gems from New Zealand and Australia).
