What do bands such as MojoFlo, Bum Wealthy, Andy Shaw Band, and Lo-Pan all have in common? Yes, they are all local bands right here in Columbus, but they listen to this band everyday, as do you. One of the most underrated groups throughout the Midwest: Columbus, Ohio.

Today's Podcast deals with found sound documented all over the Columbus area including High Street, and Capital University. Realizing that there is music all around us, and those combinations of sounds collide to create an undefinable counterpoint I feel makes us more in tune with ourselves, and each other. Ladies and Gentleman, BusTown Jazz and Improv presents: Found Sound.
