One of the hardest working people we know. The conversations are always great and Brian talks to some of the most interesting people in the city!

Do yourself a favor

Ever wonder what it's like be to a part of a small steel town's music and arts scene? Here's your chance.

Nice questions!

I love the interactive questions Brian asks. They really get people to open up, plus he is a talented musician. Always a fun time sitting in with him!
