We'll hear the rock/funk/soul vehicle Travers Brothership, led by twin brothers and Asheville natives Eric & Kyle Travers. They were in Studio B back in February to talk about and play tunes from their album “A Way to Survive.”  Also, we're going to reach back in the vaults to hear folkie Greg Brown playing live for us in 1996. One of the songs he performed was “Boom Town” which was new at the time, and is still one of our favorites.
