July 28: Interview with Bob McAllen

We are excited to announce that on July 28 at 10AM on our show Right on Radio, DJ Rodney Pate will be airing his interview of Bob McAllen. McAllen recorded a now-obscure 500 pressed folk rock album out of the Lansing area in 1967, with a failed release in 1971. He then vanished, and was presumed dead for nearly 40 years. This is the first time he has ever been contacted and has spoken about the album and his music. Some collectors consider this album a lost folk rock masterpiece, with delightful fingerpicked guitar and tenor voice drenched in reverb. The introspective song writing ranges from deep subjects like the Vietnam war to light love songs about his pet cat, making an album with a dream-like vibe. We hope you can tune in!
