Dave Kaufman — radio personality on CJAD, Montreal, and host of the Delve podcast — flew down to California for the first time last month just to see The Rolling Stones on the No Filter tour. It turned out that Andrew was in Malibu at the same time. Andrew didn’t go to the concert but was curious about to hear about it — as one might imagine. So, Dave met Andrew in Malibu the next morning and related a song-by-song experience of seeing The Rolling Stones live. This triggers many thoughts from Andrew, resulting in a spirited and highly entertaining discussion.
